Old Dominion and Colonial Athletic Association officials on Friday are scheduled to discuss the future homes of four Monarchs programs that can’t compete in Conference USA, because C-USA does not sponsor those sports: wrestling, field hockey, women’s lacrosse and men’s swimming.
Friday’s discussions will be to gauge the possibility of permitting those programs to remain in the CAA as affiliate members. Wrestling is the only one of the four for which the CAA has affiliate members.
ODU athletic director Wood Selig stated a resolution for all four programs may not come until later in the summer.
