Measuring Up: Women's Intercollegiate Sports Return to WKUUniversity Archives WKU History (2007)
Since 1912, WKU had fielded women's athletic teams, but after 1930 they were restricted to intramural competition. In 1972, with the implementation of Title IX on the horizon, physical education faculty members and students began to lobby for the quick restoration of an intercollegiate athletics program for women. Although they met with some resistance, by 1973-74 WKU women were competing again on an intercollegiate basis in basketball, tennis, golf, gymnastics, track and riflery.
