1966 WARRIOR Athletics

Coach Bill Shinsky built the intercollegiate basketball program during the 1960s. The 1965-66 Warriors placed second in both league and tournament play. The Warriors won their first conference title in 1969. There is no denying how far the intercollegiate athletic program has come. Rochester College now fields teams in basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, volleyball and golf. As a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics and the United States Collegiate Athletics Association, the Warriors often compete against larger universities and have earned several national championships. However, the program faces the same challenge it did on day one — teams still compete without the advantage of a home court. National and institutional economic conditions necessitated a delay in fundraising for a new Health and Life Science Center, but those plans are being revived. The Warriors have developed a reputation for outstanding athletic programs. Imagine what could be done if we had adequate training and athletic facilities!
