In 2005, Sage’s Athletics program was a single-gender, NCAA Division III independent competitor with just five teams. Today, it offers 15 varsity programs for Russell Sage College women and Sage College of Albany men and women in the Skyline Conference (and, beginning in fall 2017, the Empire 8 Conference). Sage has improved athletics facilities; teams have won ECAC championships and competed in the NCAA tournament; and Sage’s 190 student-athletes are regularly recognized with honors in conference roundups. Athletics Director Drews spoke to Horizons about getting from “there” to “here” – and MORE to come.
