Clemson is dropping Women's Diving but is adding softball with the target start date being the 2020 season.

http://www.independentmail.com/story/spo.../99159578/

Quote:Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich announced Tuesday that varsity softball will be added as early as 2020, but with that addition, the school’s women’s diving program has completed its last season on campus.

"We've evaluated our sport offerings over the past few years and believe this is our best path forward,” Radakovich said, according to a news release.

Softball is the sport of choice that white southern girls are being funneled into, it seems.

In the midewest, that sport is volleyball and has been for some time.

Clemson not having softball is surprising. I thought everyone down south had it.

South Carolina for some reason was late to get into fast pitch softball on the female side. I can remember as a young kid watching men's church league fast pitch games but the female side has always been slow pitch for some reason. The first youth league in the state to go to all fast pitch after the coach's pitch level wasn't until the mid-to late 1990's so the talent level hasn't always been there. I still believe the talent level isn't where it needs to be but at this point the state is producing enough high level DI talent that you don't have to rely entirely on out of state players.

Missouri state is also adding a beach volleyball team.

Cutting the field hockey team is only saving them $300k/year, but the sport is also completely foreign to southern Missouri with no high schools in the region playing the sport. It honestly makes sense to drop the sport in favor of one that is actually played in the region.

Arguably, beach volleyball is now a valued compliment to court vb, as more scholarships are available for court. Nebraska added it and suspect more serious vb school in the north will. Field hockey only has a few teams, mostly on the east coast.

We already have a strong volleyball program. Adding beach volleyball will help and we have a beach volleyball facility already on campus. The only reason the athletic department needed to make cuts is because men's basketball attendance has fallen. That's what happens when you go from 7k to 4k in attendance.
