Cronan's Career Fueled By Being Denied Opportunity

In the late 1950s, 12-year-old Joan Cowart walked to the city park that neighbored her home in Opelousas, La., with the intention of making a little league baseball team.

Instead, she left disappointed, without a team uniform but bearing something far more valuable: The drive to make a difference for females in athletics.

A little over five decades later, that same little girl, now Joan Cronan, in the twilight of a career of making a difference for females in athletics, stood at a podium introducing her final coaching hire at the University of Tennessee. Ironically, it wasn't a new leader of a women's sport. It was Dave Serrano, Tennessee's new baseball coach.

KNS Story On Future Of Stokely Athletic Center

University of Tennessee officials will ask the State Building Commission at its monthly meeting in Nashville for approval to raze the 54-year-old gymnasium, which would be replaced with a parking lot.
