Academy celebrates anniversary of law that brought equity in sports

Soccer star Tiffeny Milbrett will speak at a banquet celebrating Title IX.

In 1972, Title IX was passed into law, requiring gender equity in all educational institutions receiving federal funding. Title IX’s impact goes beyond athletics, but the landmark legislation is most often associated with providing sports opportunities for women.

A banquet celebrating the 40th anniversary of Title IX is set for Saturday, May 19 at the Tiger Woods Center at the Nike campus in Beaverton. The event will feature gold-medal Olympic soccer player and Oregon native Tiffeny Milbrett as keynote speaker. Former Congresswoman Darlene Hooley will discuss Title IX from a legislative perspective and offer reflections on its impact beyond athletics.

Sportscaster and ESPN analyst Ann Schatz, host of the online show “Heart of the Matter,” will emcee the event.

Proceeds from the banquet will benefit St. Mary’s Academy’s Buckman Field Project, providing a home field for the school’s soccer and lacrosse teams.

The banquet, supported in part by Nike, begins at 6 p.m., with a private sponsor reception at 5 p.m. Individual tickets are $75 for adults and $35 for youths 18 and younger. Sponsorships and underwriting opportunities are available.

The event is an opportunity to commemorate an important moment in history, says Teri Mariani, a St. Mary’s Academy alumna and event chairwoman. Mariani played professional softball, served as a collegiate coach and athletics administrator for more than 30 years, and earned a place in the State of Oregon Sports Hall of Fame.

“Almost every woman today has benefited from this law," Mariani said. "Prior to Title IX, women were denied admission into colleges and universities, denied admittance into medical and engineering fields, and denied opportunities to participate in sports, especially team sports."

Milbrett knows that her life would be very different had it not been for Title IX.

“Because of Title IX, years later females playing sports and having those opportunities is as natural as having air to breathe,” said Milbrett, a graduate of Hillsboro High School and the University of Portland. Milbrett was the goal leader on the World Cup-winning U.S. soccer team in 1999 and won an Olympic gold medal in 1996 and a silver medal in 2000.

“Title IX basically allowed me to live out my life according to the calling that was deep in my soul — to be a gold-medal Olympian, a world champion and the best soccer player that I could be. I am so thankful for that,” she said.
