The Oglethorpe athletic department and the Oglethorpe Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will be celebrating National Girls and Women in Sports Day Sunday, February 3. The event will take place at 11 a.m. in the Traditions lobby of Dorough Field House and in the Schmidt Recreation Center, as well as the Oglethorpe Track and Field, weather permitting.
In honor of that day, which will be celebrated throughout NCAA athletics, members of the Oglethorpe SAAC will put on a sports clinic for kids, where basic skills required to participate in golf, lacrosse, soccer, tennis, volleyball, and track and field will be demonstrated by the SAAC members. All participants will be able to join in the fun and girls and boys of all ages are invited to participate in the clinic, as are local youth sports teams.
The clinic will lead up to the start of the Oglethorpe basketball games against SAA rival Hendrix, in Dorough Field House that day, beginning at 1 p.m. with the women’s game and followed by the men’s game at 3 p.m. All clinic participants will receive free admission to both games, and there will be a meet and greet with the women’s basketball team after their game.
Be sure to come out and celebrate National Girls and Women in Sports Day with Oglethorpe student-athletes Sunday, Feb. 3!
