NGWSD Official Web site

VESTAL, N.Y.-- The Binghamton Athletic Department will be hosting "Girls Night Out" on Tuesday, Feb. 5 at the Events Center. Open to all girls in grades 6-12, the program includes both a reception starting at 4:45 p.m. and the women's basketball team's 7 p.m. game against Vermont. "Girls Night Out" is part of a nationwide celebration of the 22nd Annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day.

The reception, which will be held in the Bearcat Den, features a presentation by Bess Greenberg, the Binghamton women's basketball program's all-time leading scorer (2,024 points) as well as a 2000 NCAA Division II All-American. Greenberg graduated from nearby Vestal High School in 1997 and from Binghamton University in 2001. Over the next several years, she played professional basketball in Europe. Currently, Greenberg is enrolled at the International School of Photography in New York City.

Following Greenberg's presentation, there will be a question-and-answer session and light refreshments. Female student-athletes, representing all Binghamton programs, will also be available for a “meet and greet” session on the Events Center concourse prior to and during the Bearcats' basketball game.

The National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD) was chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1986 to honor female athletic achievement and recognize the importance of sports and fitness participation for all girls and women. NGWSD began in 1987 as a day to remember the late Olympic volleyball player Flo Hyman for her athletic achievements and her work to assure equality for women's sports.

Admission for program, which includes both the reception and game, is $4 in advance and $6 at the door. To register a group, or for more ticket information, please call at 607-777-3741.
