MIT, Athletic Powerhouse No More

The New York Times reports the Massachusetts Institute of Technology will soon cease funding to eight varsity sports, allowing it to better finance its remaining 33 sports teams. Those programs likely to be cut include men’s and women’s hockey, golf and wrestling. Eliminating these programs will save MIT’s Athletic Department $1.5 million annually, a spokesman for the Institute told the Times.

In other news, MIT apparently has sports teams.
