CCSU to eliminate golf teams, reduce athletic scholarships

Posted: Updated:
NEW BRITAIN -

Central Connecticut State University says it's eliminating 36 annual athletic scholarships, as well as the men's and women's golf teams.

According to the school, the move will save at least $2 million a year in an effort to allow the university to still participate in some Division 1 programs.

Officials say the cuts were a product of state budget cuts, as well as losses in program revenue.
