Nancy Pitkin White Lippe is a former field hockey player from the United States. A two-time first-team All-American from Stanford University, she was a member of the U.S. Olympic team in 1980, but due to the 1980 Summer Olympics boycott, did not compete in the Olympics. As consolation, she was one of 461 athletes to receive a Congressional Gold Medal many years later.[1] She is a member of the Stanford Athletic Hall of Fame.[2]

She is the daughter of United States Supreme Court justice and former National Football League player Byron "Whizzer" White. She lives in Los Altos, California.[3]
