Default Re: Haven't seen it mentioned (Closing Fike Pool)

I donít think officially cutting swimming was related to Title IX since it created a + in womenís scholarships. From what I recall, the pool was in bad shape and was going to cost a lot to get it fixed (I seem to recall it wasnít an Olympic size pool either but I may be wrong). Personally I think they just didnít want to spend the money to repair the pool and fund the program - scholarships, coaches, travel, etc.
