UNB scales back varsity athletics

March 16, 2008

The University of New Brunswick has removed varsity status from four teams in a move to cut back the athletics program.  Women's hockey, wrestling, and cross country, as well as men's swimming, will no longer be varsity sports at UNB Fredericton.  Consequently, the teams will not receive funding from the $1 million athletics budget, and student team members will not be eligible for athletic scholarships.  More than 100 students will be affected.  CBC
