HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Alabama-Huntsville’s hockey program has gotten a reprieve, for now.

Last week the school announced the program would be eliminated. 

Athletic director Cade Smith says “numerous individual donors” had combined to raise more than $500,000 this week to help save the program from the chopping block.

Two other gifts of $125,000 each from longtime supporters Taso Sofikitis and Sheldon Wolitski provided enough money to allow the Chargers to continue competing at the Division I level for the 2020-21 season.
