Penny Fall Gymnasium
Penny J. Fall played an integral role in physical education instruction and the development of women’s athletics at Washington College from 1969 to 2001. With sole responsibility for women’s athletic training, equipment and game management, and scheduling, Fall worked hard to build the women’s athletic program from the intramural level into a competitive intercollegiate power. Her persistence pre- and postTitle IX ensured that today’s women athletes can expect attention and resources equal to those of the men’s athletic programs, and strengthened the College’s commitment to equity for all.
In recognition of Fall's extraordinary contributions to women's athletics at Washington College, Cain Gymnasium has been renamed Penny J. Fall Gymnasium. Please join us for a virtual dedication celebration April 24 at 10 a.m. You may also still donate on behalf of Coach Fall's remarkable legacy.
