INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. – Former Incline High School Girls’ Volleyball Coach Artis Brandt has been inducted into the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association Hall of Fame during a ceremony on June 13 at Peppermill Resort and Casino in Reno. 

Brandt began her coaching career as the head of Incline’s girls volleyball program in 1975-76, the same year the NIAA first sanctioned the sport and just three years after Title IX passed. Although Title IX required female athletes to have the same access to sports as male athletes, it didn’t mean things became immediately equal, so Brandt spent the first year as a coach, fighting for her girls. 

“When Title IX came around, it meant equal time in the gym, but the basketball coaches weren’t really receptive to that,” Brandt said.
