MIT eyes cuts in varsity teams, gymnastics possibly.

by David F.P.

Articles and rumblings are indicating that MIT is considering cutting several athletics programs. Some discussion has indicated the Men’s Gymnastics team is possibly on the cutting block, though not as much is pointing at the women’s team, though no announcement of which teams has been made. Students at MIT have taken to Facebook and other means in order to protest these potential cuts which could affect several teams throughout the spectrum. If the Men’s team was cut it would decrease the already small number of Men’s Programs in the country, and cut the number of teams in New England in half.

More updates as they become available…

(Note: As is always the case, the author is in favor of gymnastics teams not being cut and thus this may affect the impartiality of writing on the subject.)
