Below is an article published in the Democrat and Chronicle, July 19, 1999. It was written by my high school teammate and good friend, Patty Guinan. That’s us in this picture taken during the Penn State game, our freshman year in 1980. She played for Penn State when they were still struggling to get varsity status. They were a great team and deserved to be “in the game” that year.  Penn State eventually gained D1 varsity status and in 2012 advanced to the final game in the NCAA National Tournament, losing to North Carolina. She is the one getting the ball under control in style.

I love the article! It says it all about what girls and women went through, and why they played the game. And there is a mention of the first National Tournament in Colorado!
