FOR RELEASE: Immediate, Friday, August 31, 2001

A football game originally scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Saturday – between Hudson Valley Community College and Lackawanna College – has been rescheduled. The contest, which will be played at Pittston Area High School (Scranton, PA), has been bumped back to 7 p.m. on Saturday.

Hudson Valley's football program was established in 1969. At the time, Hudson Valley was one of only two junior colleges in New York to field a varsity football team. Since then, nearly 300 Hudson Valley football players have earned scholarships to four-year schools and 15 have gone on to play professionally. The Vikings competed in the Coca Cola Bowl in Iowa in 1980. In 1996, Hudson Valley posted an 8-0 record, part of a dominant stretch that included 15 straight victories.
