(1883), the first woman to graduate from The University
(1886), and the first woman to be employed by The
University as an instructor (1888). Ms. Andrews taught in

|An early UT baseball team,
1898. CN 09267
Though baseball was played on campus as
early as 1886, official record keeping did not begin
until 1897. UT's 1898 team only played five games,
beating St. Edward's, but losing twice to the
professional Austin Senators and once each on the road to
teams from San Antonio and Galveston. The
Varsity was coached in 1898 by Alexander
Caswell Ellis, UT professor of education.
University's women's basketball team, 1902. CN 09266
Norvell, director of the Women's Gymnasium, formed a
women's basketball team in 1901. Although basketball at
the intramural level had been played by women students at
UT in previous years, Ms. Norvell arranged for the team,
beginning in 1901, to play one game with an off-campus
opponent. In 1902 the Varsity vanquished the
Town Girls of Austin by the score of 7-4.
