Title IX: Profiling Michigan's Marissa Pollick

Title IX: Profiling Michigan's Marissa Pollick

Attorney Marissa Pollick is one of Michigan’s first female varsity letter winners and scholarship athletes, and she now works as a legal consultant for Title IX compliance in collegiate sports. Pollick grew up playing tennis against boys before she started playing for Michigan from 1974, just one year after the team was elevated to varsity status.

“We didn’t have a lot ,” Pollick said,. “We had a bathroom in the corner. We had a folding chair. And we would go in and change, and throw out stuff on the folding chair in the bathroom. And that I didn’t complain about. And that made the front page of the Michigan Daily (newspaper).”

Pollick’s story was featured on “The Big Ten Women’s Sports Report” as part of an ongoing series on Title IX. Earlier, the show profiled Dr. Christine Grant from Iowa.
