Sr. Lynn Winsor honored with Title IX recognition

 During the recent fall sports pep assembly at Xavier Prep, a couple of familiar non-students were hovering around, Arizona Interscholastic Association Executive Director David Hines and Assistant Executive Director Joe Paddock.

Their visit had an element of surprise to it – to honor XCP Athletic Director Sr. Lynn Winsor with recognition by the National Federation of State High School Associations with the 2021 NFHS Title IX Trailblazer of the Year honor for Arizona.

Winsor told the Web site that the presentation, which included flowers and a plaque, was a shock.

The recognition is tied to next year’s 50th anniversary of the Title IX, which allowed females to compete in the athletic arena with the same rights as male athletes.

Winsor, who came to Xavier in 1974, told that “Arizona does a great job in regards to equity and diversity for women’s sports. I’m grateful to be a part of it.’’
