Trish Bostrom, 50th Anniversary of Title IX
Online Program

Trish won the Pacific Eight Collegiate Singles Championship in 1972 while at the University of Washington.  She is the only tennis player, male or female, at the University of Washington who has ever won this prestigious title. Trish was co-captain of the Junior Wightman Cup team with Ann Lebedeff during her collegiate years.  During this time she won the U.S.T.A. National Amateur Grass Court Doubles Championships 1972 and the U.S.T.A. National Amateur Clay Court Doubles Championships 1972. 

Trish so dominated women’s collegiate tennis in the Pacific Northwest that she sought greater competition and equality for women’s athletics by challenging the University of Washington to allow her to compete on the men’s tennis team and to create equal programs for women’s tennis.  She was a pioneer for women’s collegiate sports and helped in changing the University’s support for women’s tennis and other sports.

Trish will be presenting on the 50th Anniversary of Title IX, the work that has been done, and the work that still needs to be done to bring gender equity to collegiate sports.
