Letter from A.D. John Currie and Dr. Kirk Schulz - October 13

Dear K-State Nation,

We would like to take a few moments tonight to inform you of an important announcement regarding our athletics program that we have just shared with our equestrian student-athletes.

Following a recent NCAA Committee on Women's Athletics recommendation to drop intercollegiate equestrian as an emerging NCAA Division I women's sport, we will discontinue the intercollegiate sponsorship of our equestrian program at the conclusion of the 2015-16 season. In keeping with K-State's commitment to improving opportunities for female student-athletes we will be adding the school's first-ever intercollegiate women's soccer program, enabling the Wildcat athletics program to maintain its sponsorship of 16 varsity sports as required by the NCAA. These decisions were approved by the K-State Athletics, Inc. Board of Directors this afternoon.

While this was an extremely difficult and complex decision, we are proud of the effort of our equestrian coaches and student-athletes since the program's inception in 2000 toward building and advancing our program. Unfortunately, with equestrian no longer projected to count toward the minimum NCAA requirement of 16 sponsored varsity programs as detailed in NCAA Bylaw 20.9.6, we must move our resources to another sport so that we can continue to operate as a Division I FBS member of the Big 12 and NCAA.
