FORT SMITH (KFSM) - The University of Arkansas, Fort Smith, is preparing to start some of its sports programs, which has seen continued success since going to division two sports.

For a "5NEWS This Morning" segment that aired Sunday (October 25), anchor Daren Bobb spoke to Athletic Director Dustin Smith. He highlighted the women's basketball program as one of those successes.

The Lady Lions have 12 players returning from their 2014-2015 winning season where they won 20 games and lost nine. Smith also said the school recruits players locally and because of that, people attach themselves to the teams following the progress of players throughout the season.
