Biographical/Historical Note

Georgia Tech fielded its first women’s basketball team in 1974 with Jim Culpepper as coach, who in that year had been hired from the athletic staff to serve as the first Coordinator of Women’s Athletics at Tech. Culpepper coached the team, which has become known as the Lady Jackets, through its first six seasons, leading Tech from Division III to Division I standing. After Culpepper resigned from the team in 1980 so that he could devote more time to his position of Women’s Coordinator and Director of Intramurals, Benny Dees took over as Head Coach. Dees left after only one season to accept a coaching position at the University of Alabama.

In 1981, Tech hired its first full-time women’s basketball coach, Bernadette McGlade, to take over from Dees. McGlade, who had served as the top assistant coach at the University of North Carolina prior to her arrival at Tech, remained as Head Coach until 1988. One of McGlade's many accomplishments during her tenure was leading the Lady Jackets to their first winning season as a Division I school.

Agnus Berenato, top assistant coach under McGlade, took over as Head Coach for the 1988-1989 season. Berenato continued in the position until 2003, concluding her time at Tech with a 223-209 record. A highlight of Berenato’s coaching career at Tech was the team’s first post-season championship at the National Women’s Invitational Tournament in 1992. The team made three additional trips to the NWIT during Berenato’s tenure, and they were invited to play in the NCAA tournament twice, in 1993 and 2003.

After Berenato departed to become head coach at Pittsburgh, MaChelle Joseph became the fifth Head Coach of women’s basketball in May 2003. As of 2011, Joseph held a record of 153-97 in her eight-year career at Tech.


Scope and Content Note

SERIES 1, Basketball Programs, contains a selection of programs for the Lady Jackets basketball team home games. Each program typically includes the team's schedule for the season, profiles of team members and individual and team photographs, profiles of the head coach, photos of the training staff, and brief information on the opposing teams. Sometimes articles covering the outlook for the current season and/or reviews of the previous season are also included, along with historical statistics and records. Often during the later years, a single program was issued for each year; during the late 1980s and early 1990s, one program for every three or four games was produced. A highlight of this series is the twenty-fifth anniversary program issued for the 1998-1999 season, which contains a wealth of historical information and statistics on the team in addition to the usual profiles, schedules, and articles.

SERIES 2, Media Guides, contains the most complete documentation of most of the women's basketball seasons (from 1982 to 2005). These are yearly informational brochures printed for the media. Each volume typically contains information on Georgia Tech and its administration, team rosters, biographical sketches of the coaches and players, schedules, history of women's athletics at Tech, team records, and other information relevant to the media.

SERIES 3 consists of two post-season media guides, one published for the National Women's Invitational Tournament in 1992 and the other for the NWIT at the conclusion of the 1999-2000 season. The publications include team rosters, photos, and profiles; statistics and records from the season's games; NWIT brackets; profiles of the coaches; and other information relevant to the press.

SERIES 4, Prospectuses, are pre-season previews that contain information on the upcoming season, including rosters, biographies of key players, essays on projected strengths and weaknesses of the team, names and biographies of the coaches, descriptions and results of the previous season, history and statistics of previous seasons, and schedules for the season to come. Within the date range of this series, several seasons are missing (1995-1996 through 2001-2002).
