Bassett Featured on Title IX

Susan Bassett was featured in an article titled “30 Years of Title IX a Bittersweet Victory” in the June 16 Schenectady Sunday Gazette. In the article Bassett told of swimming and playing basketball and field hockey in high school while her role model was tennis player Billie Jean King “because there were no role models.” Bassett was among about 300,000 girls nationwide involved in high school sports in 1972 when the law was passed to bar sex discrimination in educational programs, including school and college athletics.
