For 60 years, the staff of The Pioneer has worked hard to keep the C.W. Post, now LIU Post, community informed. Athletics and sports have been a big part of the history of our campus and The Pioneer has covered them since its first issue on Sept. 21, 1956. In those 60 years, the number of athletic teams in the department has increased significantly.
The Pioneer has not wavered from its goal of covering student athletes and their teams fully, fairly and accurately. These photos of sports coverage are from issues of The Pioneers through the decades, spanning from 1956-1996.
