Inscription.  Richard and Hazel Head moved their family to Cheatham County in 1966 so their daughter, Pat, could play basketball. A 1970 graduate of Cheatham County Central High School and a 1975 graduate of the University of Tennessee-Martin, Pat played in the 1976 Olympics. Later in 1984, she coached the U.S. team to the gold medal at the Olympic Games in Los Angeles. During her 38-year career as the head coach for the University of Tennessee's women's basketball team, she won eight national titles and became the second-winningest college basketball coach with 1,098 victories. In 2000, Pat Head Summitt was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
