" Athletics takes on a broader aspect than merely winning games or boosting the team.  It has a much deeper and more significant importance to the spirit and life of a school.  Qualities of sportsmanship - determination, loyalty and initiative evolve from athletics that build strong character and sound convictions.  Individuals possessing these qualities become stars not only among their friends, but also stars in society, in America, and in the world.  They are the stars to which posterity can look for guidance. "

 It's hard to imagine that thirty-five years ago, young women were not admitted into many colleges and universities, athletic scholarships were rare and math and science was a realm reserved for boys. In those days, girls took P.E. and learned square dancing instead of playing sports. They studied home economics instead of training for 'male-oriented' (read: higher paying) trades. Girls could become teachers and nurses, but not principals, and they didn't get tenure and weren't appointed college presidents.
