WESTERN MICHIGAN SOFTBALL - 1978 / by Molly Schiot

While women's athletics were recognized in various forms since the early 1960's at Western Michigan, female sports did not join the men's programs in receiving official varsity status through the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics until 1977-78.  Women's sports were funneled through the Physical Education Department in the 1960's and first years of the 1970's.
