Book by Ron Nirenberg
"From the Sidelines to the Headlines: The Legacy of Women's Sports at Trinity University" is an expansive book aimed at filling in the gaps in coverage of half a century of women's intercollegiate sports. Former Trinity athlete Betsy Gerhardt Pasley and 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 women's sports at this liberal arts school in San Antonio, Texas. While the book focuses primarily on the post-Title IX years between 1972 and 1999, its scope extends to Trinity's founding in 1869, illuminating the century-long evolution of women in competitive sports, at Trinity and elsewhere, before Title IX.
