Legendary Immaculata Mighty Macs Women’s Basketball Team Subject of New Commemorative Website

In celebration of Immaculata University´s national championship women´s basketball teams, a comprehensive website has been launched at http://www.immaculata.edu/mightymacsthemovie/. This technological tribute includes rarely seen photographs from the University´s archives, videos, audio recordings as well as an interactive scrapbook and historic program books.

As part of the 40th anniversary year celebration of the first championship season (1971-72), the dynamic website is a tribute to the women credited as heroes of American intercollegiate athletics. The Mighty Macs website is a valuable resource for sports scholars and researchers interested in the history of women´s athletics.

Considered to be the birthplace of modern college women´s basketball, Immaculata´s Mighty Macs won three consecutive national college women´s basketball championships in 1972, 1973 and 1974.

Another milestone includes Immaculata playing the University of Maryland in the first nationally televised women´s college basketball game.

Mighty Macs Head Coach Cathy Rush was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2008. Her record at Immaculata University (then college) was 149-15. In total, Rush had six final four appearances during her coaching tenure from 1970-1977 with the Mighty Macs.

The website was designed and constructed by Immaculata´s Vice President for University Communications Robert Cole, Director of Web Design and Analytic Marketing Seth Kovanic and Director of Graphic Design Michael Nunez.
