Tennessee State Considering Starting First-Ever HBCU Hockey Program
Posted By: Kennedy Williams on May 07, 2021 |
According to a report from the Nashville Post, Tennessee State officials are “looking into starting an NCAA Division I ice hockey program.”
From the Nashville Post:
The school will reportedly announce soon announce plans to conduct a feasibility study with the goal of determining the viability of starting a hockey program at TSU as well as how much fundraising would need to be done.
If officials push on from there, TSU’s would be the first Division I hockey team in the history of the country’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
The Nashville report also said that there might also be a partnership between TSU and the Nashville Predators announced in the future. The two organizations have teamed up before, most recently in March 2020 for the “$1 million in 1-month” fundraising campaign to benefit merit- and need-based scholarships for TSU students.
We look forward to hearing more about this from TSU and seeing this HBCU make history.
