In recognition of the 40th anniversary of Title IX, the federal civil rights law that prohibits sex discrimination in education, Ashland University this past weekend hosted a Celebrating Women in Sports event.

Ashland University women's basketball coach Sue Ramsey, a product of Title IX, who was the first woman to receive a basketball scholarship at Indiana University, gave a Powerpoint presentation on Title IX and led a four-woman panel discussion.

AU Director of Alumni and Parent Relations, Jeff Alix, says the 50 former players, coaches and administrators in attendance have had a tremendous impact on women's athletics at AU.

The women's athletic reunion also included brunch being served and a varsity letter ceremony, followed by the Ashland University women's basketball team hosting Tiffin University in Kates Gymnasium.
