Ugh! McCullough Will Not Throw


The prohibitive favorite in the hammer throw, Princeton sophomore Conor McCullough, will not be competing at the NCAA Championships this week. McCullough did not meet certain academic requirements of Princeton University and the NCAA.

With him, the Tigers had a reasonable shot at the League’s first top 10 team finish since 1969. Without him, those chances dim to improbable.

    What sort of academic requirements…?

      I’d suggest that any further drill down on a person’s academic record is unnecessary. All schools have academic requirements for maintaining eligibility. That’s as far as you’re going to get, I suspect.
