Maryland finalized the cuts of seven varsity sports, though the men's outdoor track team received at least a temporary reprieve thanks to its fundraising efforts.
It's early morning on the University of Maryland campus, and Andrew Valmon is standing on the track holding two stopwatches. He conducts his workouts early, before the midday heat sets in.
"You don't want them to read about their fate in the paper," Valmon said.
Valmon will have 10 scholarships to spread across a smaller roster, though he acknowledged it was "fair to say" he will need to cut some holdover athletes to comply with the program's new roster size.
