Brock Fritz Headshot

Furman University is the latest school to cut athletic programs amid the current budget crisis.

Furman announced cost-saving measures Monday, posting a press release to notify the public that the baseball and men’s lacrosse programs are being discontinued along with furloughs, salary cuts and budget reductions.

“This is a difficult day for Furman Athletics,” director of athletics Jason Donnelly said. “We are proud of Furman’s athletics history and tradition and the student-athletes and coaches who have competed as Paladins. Moving forward, Furman Athletics will operate as an 18-sport varsity program that supports academic and athletic excellence, financial stability, gender equity and sustainable competitive success with an emphasis on revenue generation and philanthropy.
