Not to belittle but perspective re swimming and diving
boasting on conference championships, when there are only 4 teams in conference, is a little disingenuous, or naive at best. How have these teams done nationally? (Maybe great, I really don’t know, but my guess is if they were nationally ranked we would have heard more about this, as opposed to the talk of conference accomplishments). Over and over, we’ve all considered and judged major sports (football, men’s hoops, and baseball) on: football getting ranked, basketball making postseason, and baseball to Omaha. No pun intended (well maybe a little), but seems these sports have been a big fish in a little pond.
Again I am sincerely not belittle and swimming and diving accomplishments, and for sure hate to see those teams and tennis be dropped- it’s not a happy day for ECU athletics, it often these things are SPUN to make things seem worse than they are (or better).
I feel bad for the hard working coaches and student athletes in these sports and wish them well.
