This would have been about 1977 or 78. I remember the first match on the courts in Peter's Park (a parking deck now sits on top of Peter's Park) and walking off the courts and the coach saying, "Congratulations Carol. You just won the first ever Women's tennis match at Tech!" I never forgot that moment! Again, congratulations on your success!
