Golden Cyclones


Golden Cyclones

The Golden Cyclones were a 1930s group of women athletes who played Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) softball, basketball and track-and-field. Based in Dallas, Texas they were sponsored by the Employers Casualty Insurance Company (ECC) and coached by "Colonel" Melvin J. McCombs, manager of the ECC athletic program in Dallas.

Babe Zaharias was their star team member from 1930-1932, leading the Golden Cyclone Basketball team to the AAU Women's Basketball Championship in 1931.
