WYOMING — Gillette and Sheridan College announced on Thursday that they will no longer be funding any sports programs. The decision to cut all sports programs stems from budget concerns for both schools.

Men’s and Women’s soccer, Men’s and Women’s basketball and rodeo will be cut from each school. Additionally, Sheridan’s volleyball program will also be cut. Both schools were fellow Wyoming opponents for Western Wyoming Community College throughout the years.

Steve Soza, head coach for the Mustangs’ Men’s basketball team expressed his disappointment in the decision to cut out athletics.
