In all-sport meeting, St. Cloud State athletes told 6 programs being eliminated


Hundreds of student-athletes at St. Cloud State University were called into a campus auditorium on Wednesday and told that six athletic programs are being eliminated in a cost-saving move that also will require roster reductions in football and other men's sports.

The programs shutting down after this school year, affecting about 80 athletes, are men's and women's tennis, women's Nordic skiing, men's cross-country and men's indoor/outdoor track and field. The cuts were announced by athletic director Heather Weems at a departmental meeting.

The university said the cuts will save $250,000, or about 5 percent of the athletic department's general fund allocation in fiscal year 2017.
