An Interview with Coach Kenneth "Red" Simmons
Show Date: January 18, 2006
Ann Arbor, Michigan

On Friday and Saturday, January 20-21, 2006, University of Michigan Track and Field hosts the Red Simmons Invitational, named for Coach Kenneth 'Red' Simmons, the Michigan coaching legend who formed the Michigammes women's track and field club in the 1960's. He then convinced Michigan Athletic Director Don Canham to allow women to compete for the University of Michigan.

During the Michigammes February 2005 reunion at the home of Karen McKeachie and Lew Kidder, Marybeth Dillon Butler talks with Coach Simmons and with athletes Francie Kraker Goodridge, Karen McKeachie, Carol Frederick Poenisch, and Ann Forshee Crane. We also hear many of the Michigammes talk about Coach Simmons and their experiences competing.
