The Roundup: Women In Sports Event at the ESPN Zone; Quick Hits

Tonight, there was quite an interesting and candid conversation with some prominent Baltimore-area women who are involved in the sports industry to celebrate National Girls and Women in Sports Day. The panelists included Katie Hoff – Olympic Swimming Medalist, Amber Theoharis – MASN Broadcaster, Missy Doherty — Towson University Women’s Lacrosse Head Coach, Hillary Fratzke — Towson University All-American Lacrosse Player & Nicole Sherry – Orioles Head Groundskeeper.

They all discussed their careers, gender, the sports industry in general, influences, as well as the difficulties some faced as women in their respective fields. It’s too bad that the crowd was somewhat sparse for the event; however, for those that were there, hearing the insight these from these esteemed women was nothing short of fun, inspiring, but also eye-opening. I’ll try to transcribe or have a lengthy write-up and post images of the event — as it was that good — however, it may take a while to do.
