One of the first standout players in Washington’s tennis program, Trish Bostrom was also an early pioneer in women’s sports. Bostrom was an instrumental advocate for gender equity in collegiate sports before the implementation of Title IX in 1975, growing up playing tennis and earning a spot on the boys’ team at Chief Sealth High School in Seattle.
