SOUTH ORANGE, NJ — The National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD) event, celebrates athletes, coaches, athletic directors, parents and lawmakers who are dedicated to intensifying opportunity for all girls and women in sports. The event took place Sunday, January 29th at Seton Hall University.
Each school picks a female athlete to represent their high school at the event. Representing Madison High School, Catherine Crowley was selected for her efforts on and off the field.
Crowley is a three-sport varsity athlete, competing in field hockey, basketball, and lacrosse. She is a leader and a great role model to her teammates. In the classroom, her favorite subject is English. She is a writer for the school website, and hopes to be a sports reporter one day.
For more than 30 years, NGWSD has allowed women to get moving and push past their restrictions. The bravery, self-confidence and character gained through sports involvement are the very tools girls need to become the strong leaders of the future.
Thousands of people participate in NGWSD and the number of events hosted around the country continues to expand each year.
