Meagan Cowher, averaging almost 29 points per game in 2007, leads the Tigers as they face Brown on NGWSD.

PRINCETON, N.J. – The Princeton University Department of Athletics will hold its eighth annual celebration of National Girls and Women in Sports Day on Saturday, February 3, 2007. The event will feature an interactive sports festival before Princeton’s women’s basketball team takes on Ivy League rival Brown in the marquis event of a full day of Princeton women’s athletic competitions.


The Interactive Sports Fair will offer participants that chance to learn about different sports and practice a variety of athletic techniques. Princeton University’s female student-athletes will demonstrate and coach participants on the fundamentals of a variety of sports, including lacrosse, crew, softball, soccer, and cheerleading.


After the sports fair, Princeton’s women’s basketball team tips off against the Brown Bears. The game is filled with special extras for Tigers fans, including a post-game “Meet the Tigers” autograph session with the Tigers Women’s Basketball team.


National Girl and Women in Sports Day was chartered by Congress in 1986 in memory of former U.S. Olympic volleyball team captain Flo Hyman. Princeton’s event will be one of hundreds taking place across the country to honor female athletic achievement and recognize the importance of sports and fitness participation for girls and women.


Make a Day of it


The women’s basketball game isn’t the only Princeton event happening on National Girls and Women in Sports Day. Earlier in the day, the swimming and diving team will take part in their annual competition against Harvard and Yale at DeNunzio Pool, while the women’s ice hockey team will face off against Yale at 4:00 p.m. at Baker Rink. Admission is free.


The Interactive Sports Fair portion of Princeton’s National Girls and Women in Sports Day will kick off at 5:30 p.m. at Jadwin Gymnasium. The Women’s basketball game against Brown will immediately follow at 7:00 p.m. Admission to the sports fair and basketball game is $5 for adults and $3 for children under age 13.


Princeton’s National Girls and Women in Sports Day is presented by Tyco International and the Princeton Packet.
