They're the "counterweight" in terms of numbers, not necessarily prestige.


In terms of both the number of scholarships and available roster spots, rowing is the largest available counterweight for women's sports to stack up against the 85 fb scholarships plus X-number of roster spots under NCAA rules. Whether one believes the rowing team or WBB team has more prestige is strictly a matter of personal preference. WBB is definitely more visible to the general public.
