Field Hockey, Then and Now
Centre field hockey team members with Kitty Baird and her husband at a recent field hockey game. Field hockey head coach Jenelle Anthony says, "Kitty started the field hockey program here at Centre in 1960 and has been a staple in women's athletics."
Kitty Baird was associate director of athletics and professor of physical education at Centre College. She joined the College in 1959 and was instrumental in establishing varsity sports for women. Baird organized and/or coached teams in women's basketball, field hockey, tennis, softball and volleyball. Along with her teaching and coaching duties, Baird has served the college as intramural director, fitness consultant, and wellness instructor. She retired from Centre at the end of 1999, and was voted a member of Centre's Athletic Hall of Fame in 2000.
