Morthland College Axes Athletic Program

WEST FRANKFORT – Morthland College no longer has an athletic program.

The college’s Board of Trustees Wednesday night voted to transition the athletic programs to club programs only. More than 50 athletes will be affected by the board’s decision.

The school says it is blaming its problems on delays in getting government funding which has created a hardship for the college.

Three people, including the college’s athletic director, have recently resigned due to recent developments that have happened at the college.
