Auburn Women

Melanie Moore Younger ’75

Melanie Moore Younger '74

I was a member of the first Women’s Basketball team at Auburn in the 1970’s while I attended Vet School. I once actually had to leave a basketball game in the middle of the game in order to respond to an emergency call. I never even had time to change out of my basketball uniform.

My daughter, Bethie Younger Purpich, also played basketball for Auburn and was on the 1997 SEC Tournament Championship team. We are 2 generations of Auburn Women’s Basketball.
