The program will be divided into two: one for girls, the other for adult women. All ages are welcome and all events are free - preregistration by Jan. 16 is required. For more information, call Paula Habel, head coach of women’s lacrosse at 332-2828.

Girls will take part in clinics hosted by Allegheny’s women athletics teams in basketball, volleyball, lacrosse and soccer as well as enjoy the opportunity to spend time in the Mellon Pool. The day begins with registration from 9:15 to 9:45 a.m. and ends with the Allegheny women’s basketball game against Denison University at 2 p.m.

The women’s program begins with registration from 11:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and ends at 2 p.m. with the women's basketball game. The program includes introductions to golf, weight training and Pilates, all led by Allegheny coaches or instructors, with participants choosing two of the three sessions.

** Oberlin will be hosting a pair of clinics in the near future. Women's Basketball will host a Youth Day Clinic before the Yeowomen take on Heidelberg on Monday, Jan. 21 - Martin Luther King Day. The day tips off at 11:45 a.m. and is open to all children. Participants will go through a fun set of drills and activities with head coach Christa Champion and assistant coach Janell Crayton. The kids will also have the opportunity to meet all of the Yeowomen and get autographs on an official team picture. The clinic will last until 1 p.m. and children in attendance are encouraged to stay for free pizza and to cheer on the Yeowomen. The game is scheduled to tip-off at 2 p.m. Click here for more info, a clinic brochure and a registration form.

The Yeowomen softball team will also host a skills clinic on Feb. 16 for all girls in grades K-6. Head coach Adrienne Davis and assistant coach Kelsey Knapp will serve as camp directors.

** Wittenberg has announced ticket policies for the highly-anticipated Wooster-Wittenberg men's basketball matchup on Saturday. The Scots and Tigers are currently tied for first place in the NCAC, heading into the game. The two teams split last season's series, with each team stealing a win on the other's home court. One of the two teams has won the NCAC regular season title every year since 1989.

** Congratulations are in order for Wittenberg's Rick Gold and Oberlin's Curt Karpinski, who are being inducted into the Ohio High School Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame. They are two of this year's four inductees.
