Registration for National Girls and Women in Sports Day begins at 9:30 a.m. The free event runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Girls from 3rd-to-8th grade can take part in swimming, volleyball, basketball, soccer and camp games. Lunch will be served and participants can then attend the women’s basketball contest.

Think Pink will be a part of the women’s basketball game against NCAC foe Kenyon at 1 p.m. Fans are asked to wear pink to support breast cancer awareness.

Basketball Senior Day - There are two seniors on the women’s team, Whitney McBurrows and Samantha Lurie, and three on the men’s squad, Nick Welsh, Neil Collins and Terrel Brown.
