June 06, 2016

Existing Female Teams Also Welcoming New Student-Athletes

(Midway, KY) – Today, Midway University announced that it has signed agreements with three current St. Catharine College coaches to bring Men’s Basketball, Soccer, and Baseball to campus this fall and is working with each of them to transfer those teams to Midway. Midway also will add men’s golf.

“We are pleased to bring these coaches and their team members into our Eagles Athletics family,” said Rusty Kennedy, Midway University Athletics Director. “We are hopeful that many of their existing student-athletes will transfer to Midway to continue playing together as a team. In addition to St. Catharine athletes, there will now be an opportunity for other male students to look at our athletics offerings and begin discussions with our coaches about our program.”  There are also opportunities for female student-athletes to join Midway University women’s teams including archery, basketball, cross country, softball, soccer, tennis and volleyball.

The coaches hired to bring these athletics programs to Midway University are: Joe Krupinski, Men’s Basketball; Tim Wolz, Men’s Soccer; and Luther Bramblett, Baseball. Otis Smith, Midway University’s current female golf team coach will oversee the Men’s Golf team.

This Friday, June 10, Midway University is hosting a campus open house just for St. Catharine students and their families. Advisors, admissions and financial aid officers will be available and staff will provide campus tours. This session is open to any St. Catharine College student, including student-athletes. Any athlete or regular student that can’t make this event is encouraged to reach out to the Admissions Office or coaching staff to discuss transferring options.

Midway University competes in the River States Conference (formerly the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference). “We will be able to incorporate basketball, soccer and golf into our normal operations with the facilities we have or already use; for baseball we will be playing at an off campus facility the first year,” said Kennedy.

Last week Midway University was announced as one of the official teach-out schools for St. Catherine College’s students. This means that current St. Catharine students can easily transfer to Midway University.  Admission application fees are waived, the residency requirement or the minimum number of credits that must be taken at Midway University will be waived, and earned credits from accredited institutions (inclusive of those credits awarded by St. Catharine College) will be accepted. This agreement facilitates the timely completion of degrees especially for upper class students.
