Cal State San Bernardino Drops Women’s Water Polo


The spring 2014 season will the the last for the Coyotes of Cal State San Bernardino. University Athletic Director Kevin Hatcher announced that the women’s water polo team will be “discontinued,” according to the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, after the completion of this season. Track and field will be added to the school’s offerings next year.

The Coyotes have struggled to emerge from the bottom of the Western Water Polo Association rankings since their inception in 1999. The team is currently 2-19 overall and has not had a winning record since 2008 when it ended the season at 20-17.

The loss of the program comes one year after Colorado State University did the same. Monmouth College in Illinois added varsity women’s and men’s water polo last year.
