St. Edward’s discontinues athletic programs

Monday, April 20, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

St. Edward’s announced Wednesday that the university will be discontinuing six athletic programs moving forward: men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s golf and men’s soccer, with plans to transition cheerleading to a club team. Students received the information that their programs would be closing last week, and though their scholarships will be honored, they must give the university notice by July 1 if they want to transfer schools to continue their sports. Students have written a petition in response, asking the school to reinstate the programs. By Sunday afternoon, 12,380 people had signed the petition.
