Celebrating 40 Years! Forty years ago, a group of women's coaches met at the 1981 Olympic Festival in Syracuse, N.Y., to discuss the formation of a coaches association. Among those attending that meeting were Illinois State head coach Jill Hutchison, who was elected the first president of the then-nameless organization; 1984 Olympic coach Pat Summitt of Tennessee; 1988 Olympic coach Kay Yow of North Carolina State; 1992 Olympic coach Theresa Grentz of Illinois, Rutgers and St. Josephs; C. Vivian Stringer of Cheyney State, Iowa and Rutgers; and Colleen Matsuhara of Nebraska and UC-Irvine.
