TRIUMPH is an inspiring true-life story of a girl from a small town who became a world renowned legend. It begins in a time and place where women had few options and sports were a man's world.

Through the encouragement of her parents and principal, she changed her expectations and raised the bar on what women could accomplish. Kay defied these limitations to become a successful Basketball coach, a hall of fame inductee, and an Olympic gold coach. With her many successes there would be even bigger challenges. Her fiercest opponent would become her ongoing battle with breast cancer. Coach Yow faced these trials head on with grace, dignity, and her deep faith. Kay's love of people, her sense of humor, and her undying hope were contagious. She believed "When Life Kicks You, Let it Kick You Forward". This story will inspire you, give hope to you and let you find the hidden hero within yourself.
