The suspension is based upon unsubstantiated data and the present men's tennis team is a vibrant and dynamic program with 14 team members, a committed coach and an active conference. The enrollment at SBCC is 50 -50 males and females. The athletic programs at present consist of 8 men's sports and 8 women's sports if the men's tennis team is suspended and women's swimming and water polo are added, which they will be, the ratio will become 7 men's sports and 10 women's sports. SBCC was just awarded the #1 community college in the United States and the men's tennis team was included in that award so why suspend it. (Football is not included in these ratios because there is no comparable activity for women)
