University of Texas Women’s Basketball and Intercollegiate Athletics Collection

In 1974, as one of the first major universities to move toward compliance with Title IX legislation, the University of Texas at Austin founded the Women’s Intercollegiate Athletics program. From 1976 until 2007, Jody Conradt served as the head coach for the women’s basketball program, and, with Women’s Athletics Director Donna Lopiano and Sports Information Director Chris Plonksy, was instrumental in bringing the team to prominence. The UT Women’s Basketball and Intercollegiate Athletics Collection documents this time, focusing on the development of and the publicity surrounding the women’s basketball program between 1976 and 2006. The items in this collection include newspaper articles, magazines, promotional materials, game programs, player and game statistics, photographs, commemorative game balls, and media publications put out by the Women’s Intercollegiate Athletics Department.
