UC-Berkeley Cuts 5 Athletic Programs

Five teams will no longer represent UC Berkeley as intercollegiate sports starting at the end of the academic year as part of the effort to help sustain the financially-troubled campus Department of Intercollegiate Athletics.

Men's rugby, men's baseball, men's and women's gymnastics and women's lacrosse will be eliminated from the department's intercollegiate roster, according to the letter written by Chancellor Robert Birgeneau and released to students, faculty, staff and Cal supporters today.
