Lark Birdsong  

She was a four-year letter winner in volleyball, basketball and tennis at Northern Colorado (1968-1972). She completed her masters degree at the University of North Carolina, where she was later recommended to University of Iowa coaches.

She became Iowa's first women's paid basketball coach in 1974 (first basketball coach hired after Title IX). The first Iowa team finished 5–16 in 1974–75, earning its first victory over the Minnesota Golden Gophers. For the first 3 years, they did not offer scholarships, and most of the high school players had only played 6-on-6 basketball. During her last two seasons, she was able to split up partial scholarships.

She coached at Iowa until 1978–79 when she stepped down to move back to Colorado. Her final season was Iowa's first winning season.

She helped bring a professional women’s basketball team to Colorado, and became the General Manager of the Colorado Xplosion for two years.

She was named to the Class of 1997 Hall of Fame at Northern Colorado.

This site is NOT an official website of the University of Iowa or NCAA. I created this to save time searching for past videos, and watch them in the correct sequence. Any help in finding missing videos would be greatly appreciated! I can process old VHS tapes and DVDs. Special thanks to Sports-Reference.com, Wikipedia, The Daily Iowan, UI Digital Library, SportsLogos.Net and the University of Iowa Athletics Department for the historical game results! Contact us if you want a similar website for your favorite school. Site ads and links to buying game tickets contain affiliate links, which means if you purchase after clicking the link we may receive compensation, which helps cover hosting cost of the site, so thank you! We can also take donations if you want to support this work. Why not women's sports or wrestling? There just isn't enough videos online to post, so 99% of the games would have no videos available, although recent interest in Women's Basketball Final Four team and the new Women's Wrestlingmeans we will start adding outcomes and players as time permits, so we will need some help. If you have videos that you'd like to share with us, I would love to include these videos. If you want me to credit photos or remove photos, please contact me. Developed by BPI. Template by w3.css
