Women’s club basketball and the motorcycle club were recently approved by Saint Mary’s University Student Senate on Sept. 24, to become the two newest clubs available to students.

The women’s club basketball team, led by Christine Meeds and Laura Schommer, gives female students the chance to play on a non-exclusive basketball team. Currently, the club meets on Thursdays in the Recreation and Athletic Center (RAC) at 8 p.m. The club has plans for an intramural team next semester, and eventually becoming a traveling club team of Saint Mary’s. There are currently about 15 members in the club. Females interested in joining can email Christine Meeds at

The motorcycle club is open to any student with a proper helmet. Although students are encouraged to bring their motorcycle to participate as riders, members can also participate as passengers. Currently, club activities include group rides along Minnesota roadways, but future events include charity rides, and a motorcycle awareness campaign on the SMU campus. Club activities are weather permitting, so the club has put off events until spring. Interested students can contact Douglas Leonard at, or wait for further information through email.
