Wheaton College in Illinois Cuts Five Sports

March 5, 2010

Wheaton College, in Illinois, will cut five sports at the end of the academic year. Athletics officials announced Tuesday that the college, a member of Division III of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, will get rid of men’s and women’s golf, men’s tennis, men’s indoor track and women’s water polo. Tony Ladd, athletics director said, “Our athletics budget has been under increasing strain the past 10 years. While we’ve implemented several strategies to increase financial resources, we’ve had little success in making the kind of changes that would allow us to retain these programs.”
