Girls and Women in Sports Day
Erie County K-8 girls are invited to a free, all-day sports extravaganza at Mercyhurst University on Saturday, Feb. 1, in observance of National Girls and Women in Sports Day. Participants in the 9th annual event receive free admission to the 1 p.m. basketball game between the Lakers and Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) at the Mercyhurst Athletic Center, preceded by an opening reception at 11 a.m. at the REC Center. There, girls can enjoy interactive stations run by players from the university’s 12 women’s sports teams, three club sports teams, athletic trainers, and the Erie Shriners Hospital for Children. New this year is the equestrian team, whose members will bring a miniature horse to the event.
