The Legacy of Maggie Dixon
Maggie Dixon, a 28-year old women’s basketball coach at the United States Military Academy, led the West Point team to its first appearance in the NCAA basketball tournament. Four weeks later, Maggie died suddenly, leaving behind a devastated family and a group of heartbroken players. Despite their tragic loss, friends, family, and team members took comfort in knowing that the values Maggie instilled in themselves and others would live on.
