Update Letters of Support
Randy Ableman of Miami University reported tonight that the men's
diving team will continue to keep their scholarships. Also the diving
team will compete throughout the next season. The University of
Miami will maintain the diving team separate from the swimming team
until the divers scholarships have expired. The divers will compete
at invitational meets throughout the season. Divers will also be
able to compete at the NCAA Zone meet and the NCAA Championships.
Anyone wishing to send a letter to the University
of Miami athletic department is encouraged to do so. Letters of
support for the swimming and diving team and and especially the
diving team would be greatly appreciated and possibly influence
the decision on whether to keep the divers beyond their scholarship
and permanently maintain a diving team. Coaches and divers will
only be helping themselves and the future of diving by sending in
such a letter. The letters of support may not bring back of men's
swimming and diving team however may help extend the life of the
diving team and make it permanent.
If you choose to write such a letter here some points
you may want to include:
- How the university's location makes it a magnet for divers
throughout the world.
- That the university already has in place one of the top coaches
in the country, along with several of the best divers in the world.
- How closely University is associated with swimming and diving
especial the diving program.
- How the diving has brought the University national and international
- Is this any way to reward a successful program.
