JMU not alone in Title IX lawsuits

Brent Finnegan -- April 19th, 2007

In case you’ve been following the Title IX sports program cuts at JMU, you should check out this USA Today article from today’s paper.

James Snyder is a [JMU] freshman considering transfer. He has applied to North Carolina, George Mason and High Point. Fellow freshman Bill Hawthorn, who runs the 400 meters, will stay. He likes his courses and JMU’s academic standards. Five juniors plan to stay. Freshmen and sophomores are divided on going and staying. One is already gone: Freshman Scott Tekesky, the CAA’s rookie of the year in cross country, transferred to Clemson. “It’s sad to see everyone go,” sophomore sprinter Jeff Kuhland says. “This is life-changing.”

Also, The Athens News is reporting that Equity in Athletics (the group that’s adding JMU to the lawsuit) is also telling Ohio University to postpone its plans to eliminate four varsity sports, “or else.”
