University of Winnipeg cuts wrestling, baseball teams in effort to balance budget - Katie Dangerfield, Global News

The University of Winnipeg has cut $3.7 million in costs, including scrapping the school’s wresting and baseball teams. On Monday evening, the University of Winnipeg said it was eliminating senior positions, faculty positions and sports programs in order to balance the 2017-18 operating budget. The school will be getting rid of Wesmen men’s baseball team, along with the men’s and women’s wrestling teams. Men’s soccer will be put on pause for the 2017-18 season, as the coach position is vacant and the school cannot afford to replace that position for the upcoming fiscal year.
