Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The Aggie Athletic Club has seen a tremendous increase in the last four years since the new athletic administration arrived to the tune of 1,000 members, up from the 671 members in 2014-15.

“Eclipsing the 1,000 member number in the Aggie Athletic Club is a very satisfying milestone to hit for NM State athletics,” Director of Athletics Mario Moccia said. “Four years ago we had significantly less members with a total dollar amount of only $168,000 generated.

The largest increase in AAC cash donations came between 2016-17 and 2017-18, checking in at $196,069. Meanwhile, the 224 member increase from last year brought the membership total to 783, which made the 1,000 member mark attainable for the athletic department.  Continue Reading This Post >>
