Towson State has restored its men's and women's swimming programs, which had been cut Aug. 11 as a cost-saving measure.Athletic director Bill Hunter announced the reversal yesterday but did not say whether the swimming teams would survive past the 1992-93 school year. The men's and women's indoor track and field teams, also cut Aug. 11, were not given a reprieve."The university has reconsidered its suspension [of swimming] primarily because the students who would want to compete intercollegiately had no recourse for this year," Hunter said in a statement.
