Bingham High School Hosts Inspirational Womens’ Day in Sports

It was a day to empower female student athletes throughout the state of Utah. Bingham High School Athletic Director Andee Bouwhuis was a driving force behind the first annual “Womens’ Day in Sports,” which was sponsored by the Utah Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (UIAAA) and the Utah High School Activities Association (UHSAA). About 150 female athletes from more than a dozen school districts around the state participated. The girls, all sophomores and juniors, were inspired by speakers who encouraged them to raise the bar in leadership and be ambassadors for women in sports and sports professions.

The girls learned about proper nutrition to fuel the body as an athlete and positive body image. They heard from a sports psychologist and a gold medal Olympian in water polo.

It was an amazing event and we are grateful to everyone who helped in planning and making it such an impactful day for girls in sports.
