Appears W&M is rebuffing swim-team fundraising efforts


According to today’s RTD article, the team has over $1 million in pledges for the team endowment but the school is refusing to entertain keeping the team with a boosted endowment.

It appears W&M wants to kill the team and the plague is just a timely excuse for doing so.

While I have no evidence, I speculate W&M would prefer to shed a sport that’s about 100% white with perhaps a few Asians and primarily consists of young people from upper middle-class families.
