Donors meet deadline to save Wright State swimming and diving

The Wright State swimming and diving teams will be back in the pool in 2017-18 thanks to fundraising efforts that have saved the program.

Scheduled to be a part of the university’s $30.8 million in budget cuts, the swimming and diving program met the June 30 deadline to raise $85,000 to keep the men’s and women’s teams afloat.

“We are happy to have the swimming and diving teams back for the 2017-18 season, and appreciate the efforts of the group and the dedicated alumni to make this happen,” WSU Director of Athletics Bob Grant said.

According to a release on the school website, the supporters will continue to have conversations about how to fund the program beyond the upcoming season.
