CAMPBELLSVILLE, Kentucky, February 5. CAMPBELLSVILLE University will add women's swimming to the list of sports it offers, beginning in August. The program was cut after the 2000 season, but will be brought back as the 13th sport offered by the university. Lindsay Newtown Hines, an alum, has been named coach.
"In looking to expand our athletic program, we realized that swimming is a very popular sport that we were not offering," said Rusty Hollingsworth, director of athletics, in the Central Kentucky News-Journal. "There are 161 high schools in the state of Kentucky that have swimming teams and there are several colleges in the area with women's swimming. We have the facilities already in place with the pool in the J.K. Powell Athletic Center so bringing the sport back was a natural fit."
