CLEMSON, S.C. (WCBD) – Clemson student-athletes are asking the university to reconsider after they cut the men’s track and field program.
The university discontinued the program earlier this month after deciding they are no longer a benefit.
“Being able to come to South Carolina and compete for this prestigious University, it saved my life. I’ve been given different opportunities that I wouldn’t take just to come here, so I sacrificed a lot and we’re just making sure this can stay here so that kids like me can get the same opportunity,” said Anthony Hamilton, Clemson high jumper.
A petition is circulating to further efforts to save the program.
