Loss of sports at Quinnipiac

Quinnipiac College, it appears, is dropping three varsity sports: men's track, women's volleyball, and men's golf.
Much of the above article focuses on the Connecticut school's volleyball team and their reaction to the news including their disappointment that sportsmanship did not win out over revenue generating abilities. (Too bad there are no men on the volleyball team!)
It seems the women on the team will try to raise the $58,000 in operating costs.
But one first year player said she will be looking for a new school with a more solid program. Unfortunately given the economic situation many schools are facing, that search might be a little more difficult than she imagines.
