Lane 9 News Archive: Clemson Swimming and Diving Looking for Help from Board of Trustees: While, initially, the Board of Trustees meeting likely looked to be a rubber stamp for the phase-out, information provided to Swimming World has indicated that the Board of Trustees might be interested in looking into the issue deeper. The decision to phase-out the program was made completely due to not having a 50-meter pool. It was not made due to Title IX issue (Title IX actually likely saved the women's diving program in the cuts). With this in mind, and the fact that the Clemson swimmers and signed recruits did not seem to have a problem with training and competing in a 25-yard pool, the Board of Trustees might be able to reverse the decision.
