Getting Girls Sports on Track – Title IX turns 40 years old

Our guest speaker is Diane Ilstrup, who began her long career in the Rochester School District in 1970 at Mayo High School as a physical education teacher.  She was head coach of several of the first Spartans’ girls sports teams in the early 1970s, including volleyball, synchronized swimming and softball.  Title IX officially mandated equal opportunities in sports in 1972, but the road to girls’ sports in Minnesota was being paved years earlier.
When Diane began teaching in 1970. she got in on the ground floor of the explosion of interests in girls’ sports.  It should be fun to hear Diane recall some of the highlights from this interesting and important time in the evolution of girls’ sports.
