Women's Athletics 50th Anniversary
Join us in honoring the 50-year legacy of women competing in the conference

This year UW-Eau Claire Women’s Athletics celebrates the 50th Anniversary of competing in a conference, first the WWIAC, then the WIAC.  From the humble beginnings in 1971 to the 13 sports offered for women today, the Blugolds celebrate all those who have played a role in moving Women’s Athletics forward.  Throughout the next few months we will honor the pioneers who fought fiercely to give women the chance to play at UW-Eau Claire.  We will also highlight a different sport each week and give the history of how that sport began, talk about some of the glory years and mention a few of the notable women who put UW-Eau Claire Athletics on the map.  It will be a fun journey, and we hope you will join us for a new article each week on Memorable Mondays. 

 

We invite you to consider giving a financial donation to women’s athletics in general, or you can designate your gift to a specific sport.  Your contribution will help continue the incredible legacy UW-Eau Claire Women’s Athletics has established and benefit our current and future athletes.    We thank you for your support in the stands, online and financially.  We are grateful for every student athlete, coach, athletic trainer, administrator and fan of Blugold Women’s Athletics and can’t wait to see what our future has in store for us.  Go Blugolds!
