LOGAN, Utah - Utah State University's Athletics Department ranked fifth in the nation in providing equal opportunities for women in sports, according to the Gender Equity Cost-Benefits Scorecard that was recently released. The study was conducted by Charles L. Kennedy, who is a professor at Penn State University-York.
The Gender Equity Cost-Benefit Scorecard evaluated 116 colleges in the 11 major and mid-major conferences according to their commitment of financial resources to women's sports for the 2006-07 academic/athletic year.
Overall, Utah State was one of just 16 schools to receive an `A' on its scorecard, along with WAC members Louisiana Tech and Idaho who finished seventh and 10th, respectively. Eastern Michigan ranked first overall, followed by Texas Tech, Western Kentucky, Florida Atlantic and Utah State.
Utah State sponsors nine women's varsity sports that feature approximately 135 student-athletes. In recent years, Utah State has added two sports with the addition of women's soccer prior to the 1996 season and the reinstatement of women's basketball in 2003 after a 17-year hiatus.
