Article "A Woman on the Field?"

Description

This article in The Collegian addresses Anne Hurley, the school’s only female athletic trainer in October of 1975, and her appearance on the sideline of Richmond’s first home football game. Hurley, also a sophomore at Westhampton, faced a lot of controversy for her appearance as the only female on the sideline. According to a few sources, she was often made fun of for being the only female to help take care of the football players. Despite the negativity she faced, Hurley enjoyed her role in the athletic department and hoped she is making a helpful difference for the football players.
