Bruin Legend Lisa Fernandez on Title IX

As part of the celebration of the 40 year anniversary of Title IX, Ralph Irvin caught up with Bruin softball great Lisa Fernandez and discusses the impact of the legislation and the growth she has seen in women's athletics from her unique perspective. A quick rundown on Lisa's accolades:

Fernandez, who played at UCLA from 1990-93, won the Honda Award for softball three times and became the first softball player ever to win the prestigious Honda-Broderick Cup in 1993, given to the most outstanding collegiate female athlete in all sports. A four-time first-team All-American, Fernandez led the Bruins to two national championships (1990 & 1992) and two runner-up finishes (1991 & 1993). She was also All-Region and All-Pac-10 first-team each season and Pac-10 Player of the Year her final three years.

The video can be found here. Fernandez, who also had a distinguished Olympic career, is one of the many reasons we're proud to be Bruins, thanks in part to the opportunities afforded her and countless others through Title IX.
