SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Georgetown College announced on Facebook that several athletic teams will be discontinued in order to "control institutional costs."

Teams affected by this decision are:

  • men's varsity golf
  • women's varsity golf
  • varsity archery
  • junior varsity men's soccer
  • junior varsity women's soccer

Georgetown says scholarships for all affected athletes will be honored, but the College won't fund competition.

"These actions are part of a broader restructuring of the College’s budget that was necessary to respond to rapidly rising costs and to eliminate a gap between projected costs and projected revenue."
