Feb. 13, 2013
SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego Athletic Department celebrated National Girls & Women in Sports Day as well as the 40th Anniversary of Title IX on February 11 at the women's basketball game against the Pepperdine Waves. Girl Scouts of San Diego County and other local youth attended pregame to engage in athletic activities and met current student-athletes, coaches, and administrators. They also enjoyed pizza and take-home souvenirs.
USD coaches and student-athletes offered sport instruction and taught the importance of sportsmanship. The kids also made posters for the game and painted their faces. USD's Women's Center provided important information and facts about Title IX and its history throughout the game. The Girl Scouts and fans also participated in competitions on the court, watched a self-defense presentation from licensed instructors at half-time, and received autographs of the Women's Basketball team following the game. Finally, as part of the West Coast Conference Thanks Title IX initiative, a video featuring President Mary Lyons aired at half-time.
The Girls Scouts of San Diego County and fans helped cheer on the Toreros to a 70-51 victory over the Waves. It was a great night to celebrate Women in Sports and all that Title IX has done for collegiate athletics.
