Billy Jean King
By: Christy K.
Wisconsin, Grade 6



Billy Jean King changed America by now girls can participated in sports such as softball or tennis. If it wasn't for her, only boys would be playing sports and there wouln't be any girls. She also was very persistent by practicing hard. You wouln't see any girls playing soccer or basketball. Since Billy Jean King beat Bobby Riggs in ''The Battle Of Sexes'' we now see girls playing sports.
