ATHENS, Ohio - Ohio University Athletics has announced that the Bobcats' 2007 women's lacrosse season will not be played. The decision was reached after a determination that there were an insufficient number of student-athletes to field a team for the upcoming season.
Ohio announced on Jan. 25 that it was discontinuing women's lacrosse, men's swimming and diving, and men's indoor and outdoor track and field at the conclusion of their 2007 seasons.
Several members of the lacrosse team have since expressed their intent to transfer to other institutions to continue their playing careers. A waiver granted by the NCAA allows those student-athletes to retain this year of eligibility if they do not participate in the upcoming spring season.
The Bobcats were scheduled to begin their 16-game regular-season schedule on Feb. 16 at Lehigh.
