Intramural sports and physical education instruction for women at UCI started with the opening of the university in 1965 under the direction of eventual athletic director Linda Dempsay. Since then, UCI women’s athletics have produced 32 conference championships, 87 All-Americans and one Olympic Gold Medal winner.
