The University of Toledo will host the third annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day Saturday, Feb. 3, as the women’s basketball team takes on Buffalo at 2 p.m. in Savage Arena.

National Girls and Women in Sports Day honors the accomplishments and hard work of female student-athletes in the classroom, in sports and in the community. The day will showcase UT’s female student-athletes, staff and coaches to thank them for their hard work.

The sports of soccer, volleyball, tennis and softball will be represented at the event on the concourses at Savage Arena between 12:30 and 2 p.m. prior to the start of the game. The teams will have their own stations to sign autographs, host an activity, and interact with fans.

There also will be videos and photos highlighting all nine UT women sports teams, as well as cheer and dance throughout the game to recognize their accomplishments in the community, in the classroom, and in their respective sports.

At halftime, there will be a live recognition of the women who work in the athletic department.
