Supporters have successfully raised $500,000 with another $500,000 set to come from the University itself.
The pandemic affected the university to such an extent that they had cancelled programs for both ice hockey as well as tennis. However, despite the raising, there is still no guarantee that the program will continue.
Former UAH player Sheldon Wolitski said, “School President Darren Dawson did make us a verbal commitment that if you get to that number, we’ll make it happen. We’re hoping he’s going to honor his word, we were asking for a formal statement from him to say that. It would be a shame to put all this effort and we raise it and he doesn’t follow through.”
