ports pioneer will speak Monday

STERLING – Pat McKinzie Lechault, a 1975 Sterling High School graduate and women’s sports pioneer, will talk Monday about her experiences.

The free presentation will be at 6 p.m. at the Sterling Public Library, 102 W. Third St.

LeChault’s book, “Home Sweet Hardwood: A Title IX Trailblazer Breaks Barriers Through Basketball,” chronicles her life. She was the first female athletic scholarship recipient in Illinois before being drafted into the first women’s pro basketball league.

LeChault was one of the first American basketball players in Europe, and played in France and Germany before a car accident. She went on to become a coach, teacher, and writer, working at the American School of Paris and International School of Geneva in Switzerland. Lechault and her husband have two children.
