Female Athletes Honored at MHC

National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD), celebrated February 5, began in 1987 as a day to remember Olympic volleyball player Flo Hyman. Since that time, NGWSD has evolved into a way of recognizing current sports achievements and the positive influence of sports participation. The day is celebrated in all fifty states with community-based events and activities that honor achievements and encourage the participation of girls and women in sports. In honor of the seventeenth annual NGWSD, the College will host a free sports clinic (including volleyball, tennis, and soccer) for girls ages eight to thirteen on Saturday, February 8. The event will be held in Kendall Hall from noon to 4 pm. In addition, Zayra F. Calderon, president and chief executive officer of the Futures Golf tour, the official developmental tour of the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA), will be on campus speaking with student athletes. Registration for the sports clinic for girls, and more information about National Girls and Women and Sports Day, can be found at or by contacting Mihisha Evans-Henderson at or x3348.

The counter is 2,680
