Why is Title IX important? The Nike commercial above says it all not to mentioned that the United States womens swim team was nothing short of elite as a result.
Indiana State University plans to add women’s swim team as an intercollegiate sport to bolster Title IX participation and now only is that good for the girls, it means the community is getting an epic aquatics center.

ISU currently has eight women’s teams and six men’s teams.
“It’s not how many sports you have its how many participants you have, and any school that has the sport of football usually has more women’s sports so they can balance it out,” said Prettyman.
However, ISU’s arena pool is not certified for competition, they’re turning towards the future Aquatic Center to make competition possible.
“I’ve met with Mr. Prettyman on a couple of occasions, and then presented that information to our school board. The school board will be the ones making the final decision but at this point they’ve given the green light to continue conversations,” said Danny Tanoos, Superintendent of Vigo County Schools.
