Upon arriving at North Central College in 1970, Bev Thornburg took over the responsibilities of head tennis coach and instructor of physical education. At the time, these were the only athletic opportunities for women on campus and she wasted no time in changing this. In a span from 1971 to 1975, Thornburg pioneered the way for women's volleyball, basketball and softball while coaching all three sports at the same time.
