EMU Starts Rebuilding Process After Program Reinstated

He has only two players on his roster and doesn’t have any opponents on his schedule.

But Jayson Wiseman is more grateful for what he does have. Wiseman has a team to coach again and a steady income to help provide for his wife and nine children.

The Eastern Michigan women’s tennis program was officially reinstated two weeks ago following a court order stemming from a lawsuit.

The university announced last March that it was dropping women’s tennis, softball, wrestling and men’s swimming and diving at the end of the spring season due to budget cuts. EMU officials said cutting the four sports would save the university $2.4 million annually.

Women’s tennis player Marie Mayerova and softball player Ariana Chretien filed a lawsuit, alleging EMU was violating Title IX laws banning sexual discrimination. A federal judge ordered a preliminary injunction in September, ruling that financial hardship is not a defense for a Title IX violation.

“It was a really rough time for everyone because nobody wants to see student-athletes lose opportunities and coaches lose their jobs,” Wiseman said. “But everyone has been really supportive to make sure we have everything we need now that we are back. They want to help us in any way they can.”
