Across the United States, Wednesday, February 7 marks National Girls and Women in Sport Day. This year will mark the 32nd edition of the annual National Girls & Women in Sports Day event, which provides communities a platform and voice as a national observance celebrating the extraordinary achievements of women and girls in sports.
In Minnesota, the signature event for this celebration is the National Girls and Women in Sport Day awards ceremony to be held at the Minnesota History Center. This important presentation is led by the Minnesota Coalition of Women in Athletic Leadership and features athletes, coaches, sport administrators, journalists and others from around the state who have had a major positive impact on women and girls in sport.

The Minnesota College Athletic Conference will feature three stories throughout the day tomorrow from the MCAC ranks. The nineteen-college, NJCAA-affilated conference is one of the largest in the country in terms of quantity of schools and geographic footprint. The MCAC boasts over 25 women in coaching and sport administration roles, hundreds of female student-athletes and dozens of women's teams taking the court, fields and other venues of competition.
Tomorrow, stay tuned to our MCAC social media feeds, Twitter and Facebook, as we feature a coach, an athlete and a team who are but a small part of the successful role that sport plays in the lives of women and girls around our communities in Minnesota. Who will it be? Stay tuned to find out!
