As a follow up, the NCAA appeals committee upheld the decision and funnily enough decided not to get into any detail about the women's tennis program receiving only $252 in benefits for an unknown/unused phone jack due to a clerical error.So the NCAA is covering itself in glory and has revoked a conference title from the UMASS Women's tennis team due to a $252 clerical error. There was a good article on it in the globe yesterday but since that is paywalled here is a version from Front Office Sports - https://frontofficesports.com/umass-womens-tennis-fighting-ncaa/
Quick summary - UMass ASKED the NCAA to look into some potential infractions, and through the course of that investigation found out the school had given out $9,100 in scholarship money that shouldn't have been given out ($252 to two Women's Tennis players, the rest to Men's Basketball players). They were deemed inelgible, and stripped of wins...including the A10 title the Women's tennis team won in 2017, Coach Judy Dixon's final season. She was a pioneer for Women in many ways and was involved in one of the first major Title IX lawsuits while at Yale.
...even Senator Chris Murphy tweeted about it -
edit: I have known one of the players mentioned for awhile now, and she started a petition - I'd be remiss not to at least mention it here - https://www.change.org/p/ncaa-support-a10-champion-umass-women-s-tennis-vs-the-ncaa
Awesome, congrats! Seems like Carleton's been a title contender for decades, either CUT or Syzygy. Nice victory there.Three-peat!!!!
The Middlebury Pranksters Women’s Ultimate Frisbee team won its third straight D-3 National title today in Obetz, OH. They defeated Carleton College 15-12. Very happy for my daughter and her teammates for pulling this off. Great run by the 11 seniors, who will graduate next week
The Midd Men’s team also made the final, but lost to Colorado College 15-10. A nice run by them as the three seed, losing to the one seed.
Belated thank you. Yes, Carleton always good. The college championships has only been going on since about 2010, but with this win, Midd tied Carlton with 3 total NCs. Carlton has more runner ups.Awesome, congrats! Seems like Carleton's been a title contender for decades, either CUT or Syzygy. Nice victory there.
Oh, I was thinking of D-I. Carleton competes in both (they have 4 D-I titles), and seemed dominant when I was playing in the mid-1990s. But looking back they weren't actually winning titles yet then—apparently they qualified for nationals 16 straight times from 1990–2005, but their best results were 2nd in 1996 and 2000 before finally winning their first in 2001.Belated thank you.
