Sources tell me years ago Miami University discussed dropping men’s track & field.

The discontinuations drop CMU from 18 athletic teams sponsored to 16, which is the threshold to remain in the Division I Football Bowl Subdivision.

When I was in graduate school at Miami University I started the women’s cross country team as a club sport through the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women. After the first year with the team finishing fourth in the All Ohio Cross Country meet I met with the Athletic Director. 

Even though there will be no parades or road races, hopefully we will remember the reason for Memorial Day.  I hope you are able to enjoy the weekend with family and friends.  Stay healthy and I hope to see you at a race soon.  Matt McGowan

I hope you and your family is doing well during this difficult time. The time is now to find the American Spirit again. It is a time to reach out to our family, friends and our neighbors, especially the older ones, to check to see how they are doing and if you can do anything to help them.
