TItle IX ceremony June 7th

icon

The D.C. Divas are honored to be able to host the delegation from the Chinese Embassy in the U.S. along with members of the historic 1975 Federal City College Pantherettes Women’s basketball team as honorary game captains on June 7th in the game against Boston Militia.
Federal City College, now known as the University of the District of Columbia, then ranked No. 1 in a pre-season basketball poll, was one of the five women’s college basketball teams selected to be involved in this historic “Friendship First, Competition Second” sports diplomatic event against the Women’s National Basketball Team of China held Nov. 18-28,1975. The other four women’s basketball teams included California State University-Fullerton, Delta State University, Queen’s College and the U.S. National Team.
This historic occasion occurred prior to President Ford’s trip to China to continue the talks to formalize relations between the two countries. “ In retrospect, this tour happening was a monumental sports diplomacy step,” said D.C. Divas General Manager Rich Daniel.
 Counsellor Liyou Zha of the Chinese Embassy will lead the Embassy delegation on that day.
