Lincoln University to cut baseball, tennis next year

Starting next year, baseball and tennis will no longer be offered to student athletes at Lincoln University.

The decision to cut the programs comes following a 10-month study of the university’s athletic offerings. It was based on factors like the school’s athletics budget, student-athletes’ experiences, facility needs, and expectations for success.

The elimination will affect 29 student-athletes for the upcoming school year, though the university will facilitate contact for those students by other schools for potential transfers.

Student-athletes who choose to stay at Lincoln next year will keep their athletic scholarships, provided they remain academically eligible and meet NCAA requirements for progress toward a degree.

The cut drops the number of athletic programs offered at Lincoln to 12, the minimum to maintain Division II status in the NCAA.
