Our goal is to make Swimming and Diving the strongest collegiate sport, so last Spring was a gut punch. Buffalo cut their men's team, Quincy dropped their women, while Clemson put the final nail into their aquatics program, eliminating diving. Worst of all, Wright State and North Dakota reneged on promises to save their teams. The cuts were devastating, not just for the coaches and athletes affected, but also to myself, our staff and our board. How could we have been better prepared? What could we have done better?
