Soccer to be Extinct at A&M

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Alabama A&M is dropping its men's soccer program after the upcoming season to save money.
The program won a pair of Division II national titles. Bulldogs
athletic director Betty Austin says the decision "broke my
heart."
Alabama A&M plays as an independent because the Southwestern
Athletic Conference doesn't have soccer. Austin says that was the
biggest reason for choosing that sport to cut.
The Bulldogs' final schedule includes a game with defending NCAA
champion Virginia and an invitation to a tournament at Nevada-Las
Vegas.
Austin says the university will meet all its scholarship
obligations.
