PHILADELPHIA, PA. -- I have written this editorial to bring attention to the plight of the Varsity Men's Track & Field/Cross-Country programs at Millersville University (PA).
Administrators from Millersville claim that eliminating three sports — men's cross-country, men's track and field and indoor track and field — will save the university $200,000. "We had to look at cost containment," claims Dr. Aminta Breaux, who oversees the athletic department.
I believe what these administrators, President McNairy, Vice-President Breaux, and Chancellor Cavanaugh have done is wrong. And yet the Millersville administrators continue to duck, weave and obfuscate, hoping students will give up in their fight to save Millersville's men's track teams.
