|Subject: ||RE: Quinnipiac Men's Track Cut|
Thanks for the sarcasm and apathy folks.
The reality of the matter is that it is a track program that focuses solely on distance events, therefore most likely costing about 15-25k.
The school has no football team, so it makes absolutely no sense to be cutting track either for Title 9 or financial reasons. On top of this, while the Men's XC and Track teams at Quinnipiac are average at best, they still have won their conference in cross country 4 out of the last 5 years. Thus, the administration is being incredibly short sighted cutting track (because from what I've heard winning Conference XC championships is important to them), and this will not happen anymore because it will lose all its solid runners without a track program.
Hopefully, the program will reverse the decision or decide to cut indoor instead of outdoor track, as there are many solid distance programs without official indoor track seasons/conferences (ie. William and Mary).

If you answer this question you should be able to post.
