A Champion Of Women’s Sports

Yesterday on Smashing The Plateau, Digit Murphy discussed her mission to empower women, and take women’s athletics to the next level.

Here are some of her biggest influences:

1) Arlene Gorton

She really was a true champion of Title 9, and she was my mentor for years and years. She was always telling me to chase my windmills and follow my dreams.

2) Russ McCurdy

He is the former coach of the UNH’s women’s team. He hired me as the first woman for the national team in 1988. He really saw that women needed to control their destiny and that they should be controlling the sport. He saw something in me, he thought I had the right attitude to control the sport.

3) My Mom & Dad

They always told me you could do it, even if you’re a girl. My dad introduced me to the Bruins, and my mom never told me no!

4) My Grandparents

They always told me to go for it!
