University of Cincinnati Director of Athletics John Cunningham announced Tuesday that the men’s soccer program has been discontinued. The decision is effective immediately and comes amid the complications of the coronavirus pandemic.

The University of Cincinnati men’s swim and dive team has been dominant, placing first in the American Athletic Conference (AAC) twice over the past three years. Senior captain Joey Puglessi has excelled in and out of the water, setting the standard for his teammates and fellow student-athletes.
