Women’s basketball sanctioned:

The Pierce College women’s basketball team has been sanctioned by the California Community College Athletic Association, according to an update given by Interim President Ara Aguiar to the Academic Senate on Monday. Due to the sanction, the team cannot compete for two years. 

Aguiar said the reasons behind the sanction are confidential, but she and athletics department personnel will continue to update the Pierce community about the women’s basketball situation. Aguiar said she hopes to partner with a nearby college until the sanction period is over, in order for the women’s basketball team to continue playing and to have the opportunity to facilitate potential four-year university transfers.
