Westhauser claps for former coaches Sunday during the Women’s Athletics Varsity Letter Celebration at Kellogg Center.

sides, along with the year and her name.
Eugenie Angeline White Westhauser...
Making a place for herself not only in teaching but in Michigan State
field hockey sports history...
In a ceremony in February, the university presented letters to 200 women who
played sports for Michigan State before 1980, when the university began complying with a new gender-equity law by, among other
things, awarding varsity letters to its female athletes.
"Women's sports have certainly come a long way since my days
in the '30s, when we traveled by train for our games, playing in the pasture, and wearing our baggy bloomers and long-sleeve
blouses," says Eugenie Westhauser, an 88-year-old retired teacher. She played field hockey in 1932.
