Cal State Northridge drops swimming program
Citing ongoing state budget woes, Cal State Northridge Athletic Director Rick Mazzuto has discontinued the men’s and women’s swim teams. It’s the first time since the Matadors cut football in 2001 that the school has discontinued a sports team. Mazzuto said the school will drop from 20 to 18 sports offered.
He said the school will eventually save $300,000 a year when swimming scholarships are phased out. LINK
Programs like this promote future leaders, team development, discipline… Who else thinks this is hodgepodge?! If you feel the same way Speak Your Mind below! Also, I was part of this program and on scholarship, it’s hard for me to believe that it will be saving $300,000a year, not sure where that’s coming from….
