Maryland athletic department officials have reached a compromise with the swimming and diving teams, giving them more time to raise the $11.57 million or 8 years of operating cost that the university requires in order to spare their program. Now the demand is a series of benchmarks toward the goal, starting with having to raise $1.4 million by April 1 and $2.8 million by June 30, rather than the original total of $11.57 by June 30, with the total amount now having to by raised by December 30, 2013. The fundraising campaign has reached about $1 million by now. Read The Washington Post via SwimmingWorld Magazine.
