University drops field hockey from roster
By TAMARA SWENSON
Of the Emerald
Women's field hockey will no
longer be a University sport —
effective immediately.
Field hockey, which was
scheduled for its final season
this fall, was dropped Tuesday,
said Julie Carson, deputy athle
tic director.
The lack of participants is the
main reason for discontinuing
the sport, Carson said in her
announcement.
Last spring, the University
announced that it would
continue to fund field hockey for
one more year because the
team seemed committed to
compete. The varsity sport
would be dropped to club sport
levei after this fall.
"Our original decision to keep
hockey for one more year was
based on the commitment by
the coach and players to one
another to come back,” Carson
said.
However, field hockey coach
Nancy Plantz resigned her post
in July to accept a position at
the the University of Nebraska,
leaving the University without a
coach and field hockey team
members uncertain about re
turning.
After Plantz’s resignation, the
Athletic Department contacted
the team members and new
recruits to determine who still
planned to return to the Univer
sity in the fall. Few players said
they planned to return.
"We had heard that virtually
all the players planned to

transfer (to other colleges and
universities),” said Ray Hawk,
University vice president for ad
ministration and finance. “We
discovered we couldn't field a
team if we really wanted to.
“We would have continued
field hockey for the current fis
cal year," Hawk sa(id. "But the
coach resigned and players
transferred to other institutions,
leaving us without a team.
"It's hard to play if you don't
have a team.”
The unstable future of the
team last spring prompted many
players to contact other schools
about playing this fall. Under
AIAW rules students who
transfer from one institution to
another are eligible to play but
are not eligible for grants-in-aid
or scholarships unless the insti
tution discontinues the sport,
Carson said.
Even before the decision to
drop field hockey was made, a
few athletes were able to appeal
the AIAW rule and be declared
eligible to accept scholarships
from other institutions.
Any player who opted to re
turn to the University for field
hockey will receive any grant
in-aid or scholarship money
they had been awarded, Hawk
said. "We have no plans to
penalize people who kept up
their end of the agreement.”
The Athletic Department will
begin contacting other schools
immediately to cancel any
scheduled matches, Carson
said
