Students to gather in support of at UTC Men's Track & Field program

Posted: Updated:

Students will gather at UTC Tuesday to support the Men's Track & Field program.

The University recently announced it would cut the sport in order to comply with Title 9 regulations.

School officials say they had no choice since federal guidelines require the number of male and female athletes be proportional to that of the student body.

At UTC, 55-percent of the student body is female, while 45 percent is male, cutting men's track was the best solution.

The students plan to meet at 3:00 p.m. in the Raccoon Mountain Room for the SGA open forum.
