Lolly Forseth recorded 11 state titles as a gymnastics coach for both Sioux Falls Lincoln and Sioux Falls Washington. She was also the first full-time female athletic director in South Dakota history.

In an interview recorded for Girls Got Game, Forseth recalls a time right after gymnastics had become a sanctioned girls sport when gym space was limited.

Girls Got Game is a documentary that highlights the evolution of girls high school sports in South Dakota since Title IX. It will air live this Thursday at 8/7 pm MT on SDPB-TV. Hear more stories from Lolly Forseth and others who dedicated large portions of their lives towards improving the opportunities for female athletes in the state.
