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

The storied Stokely Athletic Center -- where the "Ernie and Bernie Show" drew sellout crowds in the mid-1970s, the Lady Vols played their first championship season in 1987, and Elvis Presley performed three months before his death -- will move a step closer to demolition today.

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.
