Lyman Superintendent Bruce Carrier recognized two Lyman senior athletes, Abby Eckstaine and Ashley Uthe, during the girls basketball game Monday, January 30th in honor of the 20th annual National Girls & Women In Sports Day. National Girls & Women In Sports Day (NGWSD) is a special day for girls and women to celebrate their participation in sports and athletics. When Title IX was enacted in 1971, 1 in 27 girls in high school participated in athletics. One in three girls participates in athletics in high school now! There has been an explosion in the number of athletic opportunities open to women and girls of all ages and levels of ability.
