Dale Ann Meeker’s multi-sport “career of firsts” at Wyoming’s Powell High School saw her compete in the Wyoming High School Activities Association’s (WHSAA) first state first annual girls state track meet and first unofficial girls state basketball title game. She later received the first women’s basketball scholarship offered by the University of Wyoming.
Following a hall of fame collegiate career, Meeker embarked on a remarkable 39-year coaching career that was highlighted by 15 years at the helm of the Powell girls basketball program. In that role, she was recognized as the Wyoming Class 3A Coach of the Year and was a five-time conference coach of the year. She also coached a team of all stars from Wyoming and Colorado that participated in Belgium.
Meeker’s other endeavors include 24 years as a middle school boys and girls track coach, four years as a junior varsity basketball coach, and two years as a middle school basketball coach. She also served as a member of the Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Sport, co-chair of the Simpson Committee (which selects Wyoming’s senior male and female athletes of the year), and is a member of the University of Wyoming Hall of Fame Selection Committee. #TitleIXat50
