Along with the health fair, bra drive, 3-point attack against breast cancer and everything else Marquette women's basketball is doing to help fight and build awareness about breast cancer, Saturday is also MU's National Girls and Women in Sport Day.

 Each year the BIG EAST Conference Senior Woman Administrators sponsor National Girls and Women in Sport Day and honor one woman for her efforts in women's athletics. This year's National Girls and Women in Sport Award winner is Tat Shiely.

Catherine "Tat" Shiely was one of the pioneers in building the women's athletics program at Marquette University.  She was named Marquette's first Coordinator of Women's Athletics in 1975.  During her tenure at Marquette, she served as the first head coach of both the women's basketball and the women's volleyball teams - the only female in the nation to serve as head coach of both sports simultaneously.  During Tat's 24 seasons as head women's volleyball coach, Tat won 380 matches and won 111 games in her 11 years as women's basketball coach.   Tat received the Wisconsin Women's Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Volleyball Coach of the Year in 1980 and the Great Midwest Conference Volleyball Coach of the Year honor in 1992. 

From 1985-94, she served as the Senior Women's Athletic Administrator, the first to carry that title.  She also served as the NCAA Compliance Officer during that time. In 1993-94, she served as the Great Midwest Conference compliance chairperson and was a member of the NCAA Committee on Student-Athlete Welfare, Access and Equity.  From 1994-98, Tat was a member of the American Volleyball Coaches Association Board of Directors. 

After leaving Marquette, Tat became a caddy on the Ladies Professional Golf tour for 10 years and is currently officiating college and USA Volleyball.

Shiely and the rest 1975-76 Marquette women's basketball team were honored at halftime of Marquette's game versus Pittsburgh as part of university's Centennial Celebration of Women at Marquette.

The Marquette Basketball Hour with Buzz Williams returns at 6 p.m. CT on 540 ESPN live from the Annex (16th and Wisconsin) on Monday, Feb. 8.

Former Marquette University football player Lavern "Lavvie" Dilweg has long been overlooked as one of the most dominant football players of his era. The former 1920's MU star and Green Bay Packer Hall of Fame member is finally getting some well-deserved love from those in the know regarding the Pro Football Hall of Fame.


An ESPN Insider article posted yesterday by K.C. Joyner argues that one of the main criteria which should merit automatic selection into the Hall of Fame is six consensus all-pro seasons during a playing career.


Of the eight players to hold that distinction, Joyner argues that four are being overlooked. One of those is Dilweg.


From the ESPN Insider article (subscription required):

Lavvie Dilweg, end, Milwaukee Badgers 1926, Green Bay Packers 1927 to 1934 (six consensus All-Pro selections): A superb two-way player whose resume is as strong, or possibly even stronger, than many of his 1920s and 1930s contemporaries who received induction into Canton.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Dilweg's Marquette Biography (MU Player Card) ... 

One of the greatest athletes in the state of Wisconsin's history, Lavvie Dilweg starred on the great Marquette football teams in the first half of the 1920s. As an end from 1922-25, Lavvie twice earned All-America mention from Walter Eckersall and was selected to play in the first ever East-West Shrine Game following his senior season. While at Marquette, Dilweg led the Golden Avalanche to two undefeated seasons and an overall record of 28-4-1. Dilweg also started at center on the 1925 basketball team and excelled on the track.


After earning his undergraduate degree from Marquette, Dilweg stayed in Milwaukee to play for the MIlwaukee Badgers of the National Football League while earning his law degree from Marquette's law school. Once the Badgers folded Dilweg moved to Green Bay, where he played with the Packers from 1927 to 1934 Named as an all-NFL team member following every season from 1927-33, Dilweg was included on the NFL's All-Decade Team for the 1920s.


Included on that All-Decade team with Dilweg are early pro football trailblazers Red Grange, "Curly" Lambeau, Jim Thorpe, Ernie Nevers, George Halas and former MU football coach "Paddy" Driscoll. On that 17-member squad, every player except Dilweg is inducted in either the Pro Football or College Football Hall of Fame and 11 are members of both.


After leading the Packers to three-consecutive NFL Championships from 1929-31 as a two-way player, Dilweg decided to hang up his cleats for good following the 1934 campaign.


Dilweg practiced law during his time in Green Bay and eventually entered politics in 1943 when he was elected as a United States' Congressman from Wisconsin's Eighth District. After serving until 1945, he was again called to the service of his country when U.S. President John F. Kennedy appointed him to the U.S. Foreign Claims Commission in 1961, where he served until his death in January of 1968.


Dilweg was inducted into the Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame in 1967 and was posthumously elected into the inaugural Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, Class of 1970.
