St. Cloud State Cuts 6 Sports

March 3, 2016

In an attempt to trim its athletic department's budget, St. Cloud State University, in Minnesota, will eliminate six of its athletic programs and reduce the size of its football roster, the university announced Wednesday. Men's and women's tennis, women's Nordic skiing, men's cross country, and indoor and outdoor men's track and field will be cut, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported. The university said the cuts will save the athletic department about $250,000 and that it will honor the 80 affected athletes' scholarships for four years.
