EMU To Drop Four Sports After Upcoming Spring Season
Eastern Michigan University has announced that the school will be eliminating four varsity sports at the end of the upcoming semester in an effort to save money, MLive reports on Tuesday morning.
EMU announced that they will drop wrestling, softball, men's swimming and diving, and women's tennis. The changes will take effect at the end of the spring semester.
The school says it will save just shy of $2.5 million from the athletic budget. Eastern Michigan will have 17 sports in the next school year (They are at 21 this year). These changes do not affect EMU's affiliation with the Mid-American Conference, in which they have been a member of since 1972.
