Now Three Are Gone.

The first this fall to announce the elimination of men’s soccer was the University of Richmond. The demise of the Spiders men’s soccer program, along with track & field, in favor of a new intercollegiate lacrosse program, shocked UR soccer supporters. Towson was the next to announce that it was also dropping men’s soccer, and then came a similar announcement by Mount St. Mary’s. Three Middle Atlantic men’s intercollegiate programs are gone.
Towson’s decision also calls for the elimination of the baseball program, the return of men’s tennis and an adjustment in roster sizes of other men’s and women’s sports and will save $800,000 a year. At Mount St. Mary’s men’s and women’s golf will also cease following the 2012-13 academic year at Mount St. Mary’s, a move that will save the school more than $400,000 annually.
