Softball for Weatherford?

New trustees are in place at Weatherford College in Texas and all are going forth with the agreement with OCR that states that the college will survey students and add a women's team if results deem it necessary. This article, though not stating if and when a survey will occur, does mention that on the agenda for an upcoming trustees' meeting is the addition of women's softball.
Some say that Weatherford was always planning on moving toward compliance even before the women's basketball coach filed a complaint with OCR. And some welcome the opportunity to prove their commitment to gender equity.
