WILLIAMSBURG, Va. — Citing financial concerns, William & Mary announced Thursday the university will be discontinuing several varsity sports, beginning next school year.
William & Mary said this will be the final season for men's and women's gymnastics, men's and women's swimming, men's indoor and outdoor track and field, and volleyball.
After the 2020-2021 academic year ends, those sports will no longer be offered at the university.
