Special to the Leader

CLEVELAND—Fern Gardner, former women’s basketball coach and senior associate athletics director at the University of Utah, and a Deweyville native, has been selected for the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) Hall of Fame. Gardner and 11 other inductees will be recognized during NACDA’s 45th-annual convention on June 23, in Anaheim, Calif.
One of the most prominent female athletics administrators in the history of collegiate athletics, Gardner was No. 36 on Sports Illustrated’s list of Utah’s 50 greatest sports figures. Last year she made the Leader’s Mt. Rushmore of valley sports figures.
The U. hired her in 1975 in the dual role of women’s basketball coach and women’s athletic director. In 1983, Gardner left coaching to become a full-time assistant athletics director.
