College of Marin adding sports

I need to think of a new way to say "despite these tough economic times, _____ is adding sports." Because it's happened again and I am starting to wonder if we've now reached trend status.
The College of Marin in California is adding two women's sports: softball and volleyball. Oh, and it's also renovating some of its athletic facilities.
The addition of the two sports is part of the plan to remedy a 2006 complaint to OCR apparently filed by a student. And the school is optimistic that the additions will help the rosters of other women's teams because of the possibility of multi-sport athletes as well as help recruiting generally.
