An Athletic Journey for Women 4 April 2014
By Marsha Thauwald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Before Brittney - A Legacy of Champions is a wonderful book for anyone who wants to explore not only the athletic journey for women in sports at Baylor University, but all over the nations! Dr. Goodloe does a terrific job of tracing what was happening for female athletes before, during, and after Title IX implementation. What is Title IX?

Read Before Brittney - A Legacy of Champions to find out and recommend it to all of your friends who have taken this same journey in sports!!

Excellent Resource for Title IX Research 16 Jun. 2014
By Lin Blansit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Dr. Goodloe gives us an intelligent analysis and historical accounting of the development of intercollegiate sports for women at a major private university. She utilizes candid eyewitness accounts, including her own, documented anecdotes, and records in a manner that is surprisingly objective, given the struggle she and others endured for many years while being subjected to resistance from various powerful sources. Title IX was literally the game changer. As a former member of the Baylor Women's Golf Team, when we were still providing our own tees and balls, and Baylor Women's Athletic Cabinet, when it was time to challenge the resisters, I am very appreciative that Dr. Goodloe recognized this subject as a book that needed to be written. In addition to being interesting reading, it is an excellent resource for those doing scholarly historical, sociological, legal, and political research. Lin Blansit, Attorney and Educator
Before Brittney A Legacy of Champions 28 April 2014
By charlene warnock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The history of women in sports, the organizations pushing for equal rights in sports, as well as the history of the Baylor Bearettes is contained in this book. What an honor it is for me to be able to look back at my participation in sports at Baylor University and know that I was part of a great movement to provide more benefits for female athletes today. I truly admire those female athletes participating before me whom I consider to be the true pioneers of women's athletics.
This is a must read for female athletes of all ages, because as history often does, this book shows how good things evolve if the participants don't lose faith and keep pressing on.
Dr. Nancy Goodloe has done an excellent job researching and "telling the story" of one organization's struggle to turn their passion for sports into a bonifide program of excellence.
Here's how we got to where we are today in women's sports. 27 April 2014
By G. Curtiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Young women of today may take for granted the options they have to pursue collegiate or professional sports. The WNBA, women's tennis, golf, and soccer are "of course" options for women. It wasn't always that way. Dr. Goodloe's well researched book takes us through the substantial changes in women's sports made since the 40's and 50's. Yes, we have come a long way -- but there are still "men's only sports" (baseball, hockey, football) that women are kept out of even if capable. The history of women's sports at Baylor is representational of collegiate sports all across America.

This is a fun, interesting read well documented with pictures and player anecdotes. Highly recommended.
Women's Athletics 20 April 2014
By Lawrence L Lowther - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Dr. Goodloe has not only given a history of the evolution of women's athletics at Baylor University, but she has also given us an analysis of the struggles and developments of women's athletics on a national scale. The most interesting chapters to one who is not an alumnus of Baylor are those dealing with the struggle between the AIAW and the NCAA for control of the women's programs and the achievements of Title IX in spite of the strong opposition nationally of the mostly male-dominated athletic establishment. This book will be of immense value to those interested in the history of women's athletics in America.
