University of Minnesota Board of Regents Approves New Proposal Which Retains Men's Outdoor Track


Earlier today, the University of Minnesota Board of Regents approved a "revised resolution" (7 to 5) regarding the elimination of men's sports programs at the university.


The revised resolution eliminates men's indoor track, men's gymnastics and men's tennis. However, the new proposal retains men's outdoor track, albeit at a potentially reduced roster size. Details regarding future roster sizes are still unclear.


The original proposal, which was announced on September 10th, suggested cutting both men's indoor track and outdoor track, along with men's gymnastics and men's tennis.


The University of Minnesota now joins Brown University as schools that have reversed a decision/proposal which originally cut one of their men's track teams.


In late September, The Stride Report interviewed two University of Minnesota track and field athletes (Dawson LaRance and Declan Dahlberg) to discuss the proposed cuts.
