It was an exciting time for women’s tennis when identical twins Judy Sigel Freeman (Art) and Jill Sigel Greer (Art) attended CU. Professional female tennis player Billie Jean King had just beaten Bobby Riggs and Title IX had just passed for equality in sports for women.

Her CU sweatsuit now hangs in Old Main. The twins, now 65, continue to play tennis together in the Twin Cities. “We dress alike and feel that usually gives us a three-game advantage,” said Judy, whose husband, Todd Freeman (Mktg’74), was a cheerleader at CU.
