Mary Baldwin University announced today that it will be adding men’s basketball to the university’s NCAA Division III athletics offerings.
“We are thrilled to add men’s basketball to the roster of Mary Baldwin Athletics programs,” said Tom Byrnes, Mary Baldwin University (MBU) athletics director. “Basketball is an ideal fit for our department, for MBU, and for the many fans of the game here in the Valley. We look forward to building a competitive program and creating more opportunities for student-athletes to continue their playing careers as Fighting Squirrels.”
The addition of men’s basketball continues MBU’s athletics renaissance, which has seen new sport offerings, facilities, and personnel come online over the past two years. The robust slate of athletics programs and recruitment of student-athletes support the university’s strategic initiative toward enrollment growth.
