No quality coach, program dropped

With the spate of recent teams being cut or dropped from school's varsity roster due to budget issues, this news out of Montana is an interesting change.

Miles Community College has dropped its women's volleyball program after unsuccessful three attempts at finding a qualified coach for the team. The program was restarted in 2005 but will again be dropped.

The school has said it is looking into possible sports to replace volleyball. On the list are soccer, cross-country, track & field, or even rodeo, which currently exists as a club sport. I don't believe rodeo is on the NCAA's list of approved or emerging sports for women. But then again, neither is competitive cheer!
