Under the guidance of the Director of Women’s Physical Education, Eunice Aden, recreational activities expanded. Resulting from this expansion was the formation of basketball teams for each class (freshman, sophomore, etc.). While basketball was the only sport with an intercollegiate component, it was largely an intramural and interclass event. “T” pins, letter sweaters and a “Texas blanket” were awarded to those students who achieved the highest levels of participation based on a point system and were considered a significant achievement for female athletes on campus.
