During her college years, Jan Williamson was quite active in the College Athletic Department. She not only played softball and basketball for 4 years but also was a co-captain for both sports. To add to her impressive list of activities, Jan played volleyball for 2 years and was involved in intramural sports for 2 years. In 1975-76, Jan’s teammates voted to honor Jan with the Women’s Softball MVP Award. The recipient of this award is the player who best contributes to team leadership, exemplifies a constant effort for team victory, gives one hundred percent both offensively and defensively, and offers the greatest amount of concern for the team and the college. The player selected should also display the utmost integrity, on and off the field, toward opponents, officials, spectators, coaches and teammates as well as posses an overall dedication to the sport. Jan’s teammates felt the she was the player who displayed all of these attributes. Appropriately enough, due to her intense involvement in athletics, she was also chosen sportswoman of the year in 1975-76.
