ATHENS, Ohio- The Ohio University Athletics Department played host to the fifth annual Celebrating Women's Leaders: On and Off the Court Event during the Bobcats' women's basketball game against Toledo on Jan. 26.
The event is a partnership between Ohio Athletics, the Ohio University Women's Center and the Department of Women's and Gender Studies.
More than 150 of Ohio's top women's leaders attended the game. During the game, those in attendance were invited to participate in an interactive trivia contest that showcased the role women have played in sports and in history.
The highlight of the afternoon occurred during a halftime ceremony that honored some of Ohio's most accomplished female leaders, as selected by a panel from the Ohio University Women's Center and the Department of Women's and Gender Studies.
The department also honored former Ohio field hockey head coach Catherine Brown on her induction to the NFHCA Hall of Fame posthumously. Former Bobcat field hockey head coach Kim Brown joined the recognition on her behalf.
