Wolf Pack athletics kicks off celebration of women's sports with Title IX anniversary event

Women’s sports grabbed the spotlight Wednesday afternoon in the Nevada athletics department, and the plan is for that to be much more than a one-day deal.

Wolf Pack coaches, players (current and former), boosters, athletics administrators and members of the public who made the trip to Legacy Hall gathered for a luncheon Wednesday to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the passage of federal Title IX legislation. It was the first event in what is planned as a yearlong celebration of women’s sports at Nevada.

Title IX — formally, the Patsy T. Mink Equal Opportunity in Education Act — was part of the Education Amendments of 1972.
