3 Men's Sports Teams Eliminated at Millersville University

Millersville cuts its men's track and field team and men's cross country team. 

Millersville University cuts three sports after citing financial challenges, Tuesday.

The men's cross country, indoor and outdoor track and field programs will be eliminated, affecting around 30 students.

"This direction was made after careful deliberation when trying to concentrate diminishing budget dollars," said Vice President of Student Affairs, Dr. Aminta Breaux. "The university cannot sustain intercollegiate teams and be responsive to growing needs that affect all student-athletes."

School officials say this move will save around $200,000; with that money being spread out throughout the other remaining sports. Officials also say scolarships will continue to be honored or the school will work with students that wish to transfer.

The women's team for all three teams will continue at the university.
