Synopsis: This book invites readers to experience the journey of women’s intercollegiate athletics from the beginning to the present day. While the record-setting basketball dynasty of Coach Pat Summitt and the regional and national successes of ten other sports teams create fascinating stories in themselves, the saga of the Lady Volunteers actually began as early as 1893 when the first women enrolled as students at the University of Tennessee. This book captures the enthusiasm, determination, and vision of those who created the foundations for this leading women’s athletic program.
