When Trish Hodgson first came to Lipscomb University from Canada in 1971, tennis and badminton were the only sports for women. She played for the badminton team, but women's basketball is where she became a campus pioneer. As coach of the women's tennis team and director of women's intramural sports, she often heard requests for more women's sports programs. After coaching a team from Lipscomb against Trevecca Nazarene University in an exhibition, she was asked to take over the first Lady Bisons basketball team for the 1977-78 season. She served as head coach for two seasons, and then as an assistant to Frank Bennett for fiver more seasons. In the spring of 2000 Trish decided to step down from her duties as women's tennis coach to concentrate on teaching, her first love, in the Kinesiology Department. The trademarks of her teaching and coaching careers have been professionalism, honesty, and integrity. Whenever the women's basketball players at Lipscomb take the court, they owe a debt of gratitude to Trish Hodgson.
