Example text

Most people believed that women were physically too weak and delicate to play sports. There might as well have been a sign at the gymnasium door that said MEN ONLY. Fortunately, some women didn’t believe what they were told. When these sports pioneers were told “Girls don’t,” they did. ” And when they were told “Girls can’t,” they became more determined than ever. This book tells the stories of several pioneers in women’s sports, all of whom refused to be told what they could and could not do. And because they proved that girls can do anything, women today compete in sports of all kinds, from track and field, figure skating, and swimming to tackle football and racecar driving.

Of the three sisters, Meg was the most dedicated and, at first, the most athletic and talented. She learned quickly and was soon competing in races. Trudy, on the other hand, didn’t seem too promising. In fact, the first time Trudy swam in the pool, one of the other instructors told Coach Handley that she was “too wild” in the water and suggested that they steer her toward the diving team. But Handley was patient with his students, and ever so slowly, Trudy began to improve. She just liked to swim and didn’t care much about competing.

Both young women returned to their hometowns. Instead of becoming bitter and allowing the incident to deter them, each became more determined than ever to compete and earn a place on the 1936 Olympic team. Over the next four years, both women won race after race. Louise won the Curley Cup again in 1933, and later that year, in a race in Chicago, she defeated two of her white Olympic teammates to win the AAU 100-meter championship. Louise even dropped out of high school to focus on running, working as a domestic to help support her family.
