Quinnipiac athletics director testifies in federal lawsuit on elimination of women’s team

AD testifies in Quinnipiac Title IX lawsuit

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — Quinnipiac University’s athletics director has testified that some coaches manipulated their rosters to meet gender equity goals.

Jack McDonald took the stand Tuesday in a federal lawsuit filed by the women’s volleyball team, which the school plans to eliminate.

The team members claim that Quinnipiac is in violation of Title IX laws, which govern gender equity in college sports. The players want their sport reinstated.

McDonald said no coaches were told to drop or add players to meet Title IX goals but said some did.

U.S. District Judge Stefan Underhill is being asked to issue an injunction blocking the university from cutting the program while the issue is litigated.
