National Girls and Women in Sports Day Celebrated in Pac-12

Since June, the Pac-12 has been celebrating its rich history of women’s sports through the Power of the Pac Campaign, which marks 50 years since the passage of the landmark Title IX legislation.

The Pac-12 has won 201 women’s national championships and dominated a number of sports since the NCAA began sponsoring women’s athletics in 1981-82. Only in the 2022 calendar year did a Pac-12 member win the women’s soccer national championship (UCLA) , women’s golf (Stanford), beach volleyball (USC), and water polo (Stanford).

Feb. 1 marks National Girls and Women in Sports Day, so Pac-12 schools took to social media to recognize the contributions of women in their athletic departments, from coaches and student-athletes to all staff in between.
