Prominent Women in Minneapolis Sports History

Minnesota women have dominated the national sports world since before the start of World War II. Their skill and grace wowed millions who followed their every three-pointer, line drive or slalom pass. Many of these athletes were the forerunners to Title Nine, paving the way for thousands of young women today with dreams of gleaming trophies, playing in packed stadiums, and claiming Olympic gold.
