A complaint alleging that female athletes at Clark College did not receive equal opportunity compared to male athletes was filed March 5 with the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights in Seattle.

The complaint states, "Campus softball facilities, equipment and supplies, and publicity are not being offered to women equal and comparable to the superior accommodations provided male baseball programs at its Clark College campus."

In a March 6 letter, the Office for Civil Rights stated the complaint is being evaluated to determine whether the allegations raise issues within OCR's authority.
