First Annual William & Mary Celebration of Women's Athletics Recognizes Millie West
The College of William and Mary Athletics Department hosted the first annual Celebration of Women’s Athletics on May 7, 2010. This event is intended to highlight the history of our women’s athletic programs, female athletes and coaches who have accomplished much success both on and off the field, and to celebrate women whose achievements personally, professionally and charitably have resulted from their experience in Division I intercollegiate athletics.
The William and Mary Athletics Department invited all former female varsity athletes and former women’s sport coaches at the College to return to Williamsburg for celebratory weekend. The ceremony was to honor Millie West, a coach, administrator and contributor to William and Mary Athletics for the past 50 years as well as recognize the CAA Silver Anniversary team members from our women’s athletic teams.
Millie West serves as curator and chairperson of the ITA Women's Collegiate Tennis Hall of Fame, which began in 1995 and is located on McCormack-Nagelsen Tennis Center at the Caoolege of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Va.
This is an exciting award for Millie and women's athletics and we congratulate her.
