In celebration of National Girls and Women in Sports Day, Oberlin College women coaches and athletes hosted more than 100 young girls from Oberlin and the surrounding communities for the third installment of Play Like a Girl. Women student-athletes held clinics in field hockey, lacrosse, volleyball, basketball, softball, badminton, and soccer. “The day was an incredible reminder that to do anything 'like a girl' is to do things with confidence, kindness, and intention,” said Delta Lodge Director of Athletics and Physical Education Natalie Winkelfoos.
