Eastern Michigan To Cut 4 Sports Teams
Eastern Michigan will cut the 4 sports teams due budget cuts and also so they can remain in the Mid-American Conference and Division 1 FBS. The sports programs that will be affected are wrestling, women's softball, men's swimming and diving and women's tennis teams. The move is part of the university's effort to restructure their budget and should save Eastern Michigan over two million dollars.
The university says that it will still honor the athletics scholarships of all of the student athletes that have been affected by the cuts due to the restructuring should the students decide to remain at Eastern Michigan to continue their studies.
