Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC)
This week, Wellesley’s Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC) elected a new executive board and welcomed the new team representatives. This new committee will serve until December. Lacrosse player Mayu Kikuchi ’18, basketball player Zojajha Ayub ’19, and rower Mia Caglieris ’19 will be assuming the executive board responsibilities for the coming calendar year. SAAC also instituted a new College Government member to represent the athletic community at weekly Senate meetings. We look forward to seeing what SAAC has in store for this year.
