The University of Northern Iowa has reversed a decision to drop its women’s swimming and diving and tennis programs. The men’s and women’s teams were cut in May to save money in UNI’s athletic department. The group “Trial Lawyers for Pubic Justice” said they planned to file a lawsuit against the university based on Title Nine compliance. An assistant Iowa Attorney General has advised the school to reinstate the programs in the face of the lawsuit. Athletic Director Rick Hartzell says they’ll reinstate the programs at the same level of funding as they had before the cut. Swim coach Danny May will be offered the women’s coaching job. A search will be held for the women’s tennis job.
