One of the first African-American female student-athletes at WVU was Cheryl Nabors, who joined the women’s track and field team in 1976. In 1981, Olivia Bradley Janis Denise Drummonds, and Cathy Parson led the WVU women’s basketball team to its first 20-win season in program history, eight years after the women’s team had been established at WVU.
