TRACY AUSTIN COMING TO CSU
Tennis legend Tracy Austin will be the keynote speaker at Columbus State University Athletics' Girls in the Game Advance Initiative Luncheon, April 9, at CSU's Frank G. Lumpkin Center.
At age 16, Tracy Austin became the youngest female champion of the U.S. Open. An inductee into the International Tennis Hall of Fame, Austin has won three Grand Slam titles, the women's single titles at the U.S. Open, and mixed double titles at Wimbledon. In 1994, she retired from professional tennis and became a sports commentator.
Launched in 2015, Girls in the Game seeks to advance and provide support to Columbus State University's female student athletes so that they may reach their full potential academically and athletically, while empowering them to become leaders in life. Each year, CSU hosts a Girls in the Game Advance Initiative Luncheon that brings together those who are passionate about supporting sports programs for girls. Past speakers at the event included Brandi Chastain, FIFA Women World Cup Champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist, as well as Annika Sörenstam, World Golf Hall of Famer and LPGA legend.
