The 1973-74 women’s basketball team was “officially” a club program, but competed against several varsity programs, with the intention of joining the varsity ranks in the following season. That 1974-75 team entered NCAA Division III and went a perfect 16-0 to begin the storied history of Fairfield Women’s Basketball and Women’s Athletics at the NCAA varsity level.
