Am I the only one unsure of the ramifications behind this decision? The bogeyman may be Title IX. My son attends Duquesne and when they entered the NEC, they needed to provide football scholarships. The result was the elimination of baseball, golf, wrestling and men’s swimming plus additional scholarships for women’s lacrosse and volleyball. Is there any stipulations about allowing athletic scholarships in women’s olympic sports? Will this cause the elimination of some men’s sports on campus? This can be a very expensive proposition for a school Lehigh’s size.
