Gail Sykes-Clayton, who played golf as an individual alongside the men's team from 1968-71, was one of only six golfers to be named to the first Women's Intercollegiate All-America golf team in 1969. She enrolled at ECU during the fall semester of 1968 after winning the National Intercollegiate Championship as an individual that same year. While at ECU, she continued to play competitively and won consecutive Ohio State Women's Championships in 1975 and '76. She continued to play competitively into the early 1980s before giving birth to the last of her four daughters.
