Jeff May Lander University Athletics Director “At Lander, we are focused on building an environment where our student-athletes can thrive and achieve at their highest levels both in the classroom and on the playing fields and courts. We encourage our student-athletes to strike a balance between the requirements of their academic studies and their time spent practicing and competing in their sports. Lander’s athletic programs are very competitive and our teams make regular appearances in conference, regional and national championship play. We are also extremely proud of our Bearcat venues: n Finis Horne Arena is a top-notch facility for our men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball teams. n Jeff May Complex for Recreation, Wellness and Sports is a state-of-the-art facility for our baseball, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, and men’s and women’s soccer teams.
