In the early 1970s, Patrick F. McGlade was a bit troubled that his six very athletic sisters had no place to play summer basketball. Those were the days before federal legislation required equality in sports, sister Agnus Berenato said, and "in the summer there was no place to play. " So, she said, Mr. McGlade helped organize the first such summer league, eight to 10 teams of players from several schools in Burlington, Camden, and Gloucester Counties. It certainly helped Berenato, who retired in 2013 as head women's basketball coach at the University of Pittsburgh.

Gloria Bonilla-Santiago said she knew that pursuing a career in academia was not going to be easy. Bonilla-Santiago, director of the Community Leadership Center at Rutgers-Camden, said she began working at the university as an administrator, a job she said she did not like because it "didn't really allow her to make any changes. " She decided to get her Ph.D. in sociology, and then became a member of Rutgers-Camden's faculty. As an educator, she said, she faced obstacles rooted in covert prejudice and low expectations.

WHEN I stepped on the court for warmups Saturday, for what would turn out to be the last time this season, it felt different. All of a sudden, everything that we had accomplished finally felt real. Winning the Ivy League championship was one of the best moments of my life, and there was no better reward than being a part of the NCAA Tournament. It's every basketball player's dream to make it to the Dance and I understand why - we were among the best women's basketball players in the country and we deserved to be there.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The problem with taking lessons from an NCAA Tournament loss is that the course is so difficult, you never can be sure when the next opportunity to take the exam will be. Theoretically, the Penn women's basketball team can take a lot of things from Saturday's 65-53 loss to Washington in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The Quakers, who were outlasted but not overwhelmed by the Huskies, return almost all of the key players from an Ivy League champion that finished 24-5, and the best player - center Sydney Stipanovich - will be a senior who played in the postseason in her three previous years.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Penn's bid to win a women's NCAA tournament game for the first time came up short Saturday, as a cold-shooting fourth quarter doomed the No. 10-seeded Quakers in a 65-53 loss to No. 7-seeded Washington. Penn led 13-7 at the end of the first quarter, but Washington opened the second with a 10-0 run. Once the Quakers got back on their feet, they kept the game close, and took a 25-24 lead into intermission thanks to Kasey Chambers' buzzer-beating three-pointer. A tight third quarter culminated in a corner three-pointer by Talia Walton that gave the Huskies a 42-40 lead.

Janet Benton is a writer, editor, and teacher of writing at the Word Studio As a writer of historical documentaries and novels, I know more than a passing bit about American women who have all but vanished from contemporary accounts. I'm often appalled at most women's systematic erasure. Yet few things puzzle me more than their ongoing absence from the names and descriptions of homes. If history's women hadn't been delegated the tasks of home and family - and jointly valorized for and consumed by this work - perhaps it wouldn't strike me as an outrage when a historic home bears the name of its adult male occupant alone and when women are left out of its description.

In June 1909, Alice Paul sent a letter to her mother from London. "Dear Mamma. . . I have joined the 'suffragettes' - the militant party of the women's suffrage question," it began. About six months later, a New York Times report said that Paul's screams were heard "resounding through the prison" in London when painful force-feedings were implemented to stop a hunger strike by the suffragettes. Paul mailed another message to her childhood home in Mount Laurel and addressed it to her mother, Tacie: "I am sorry thee was so worried..

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The NCAA women's basketball tournament committee gave Penn a Plum assignment in the 64-team draw, but that might not be a good thing. Mike McLaughlin's 10th-seeded Quakers (24-4) will face Washington (22-7), seeded seventh, Saturday in a Lexington subregional contest. Penn is faced with stopping one of the top scorers in the nation and the leading scorer in the tournament field. Her name is Kelsey Plum and the 5-foot-8 junior guard from suburban San Diego already has scored 2,296 career points with a season average of 26.2 per game.
