In spring 2014 Peggy Kokernot Kaplan, a former Trinity University athlete and cofounder of the womens track team, emailed her alma maters athletic department asking the school to post statistics from the teams 1975 season. Its no surprise that they couldnt fulfill her request, for Trinity had sparse records from the 1970snot just for track and field but for most performances by female athletes before 1991, when the school joined a NCAA Division III conference. What started as a humble email request nearly a decade ago has culminated in The Legacy of Womens Sports at Trinity University:From the Sidelines to the Headlines, an expansive book aimed at filling in the gaps in coverage of half a century of womens intercollegiate sports. Former Trinity athleteBetsy Gerhardt Pasleyand historian Doug Brackenridge, along with other members of the Trinity community, have collected hundreds of long-forgotten documents and conducted dozens of interviews with former students, coaches, and administrators to tell the fascinating, multifaceted story of womens sports at this liberal arts school in San Antonio, Texas.While the book focuses primarily on the postTitle IX years between 1972 and 1999, its scope extends to Trinitys founding in 1869, illuminating the century-long evolution of women in competitive sports, at Trinity and elsewhere, before Title IX. The story, told alongside the cultural shifts that formed the social and athletic context for female athletes of the day, also documents the decision Trinity and other institutions of higher learning faced after Title IX: Should they adhere to a commercial model, in which a focus on athletics often overshadowed academics, or strive for a more balanced student-athlete, nonscholarship model? Trinity chose the latter and has decades of national championships and academic accolades to show for it.
