Cypress Celebrates National Girls and Women's Day in Sports

Cypress, CA - The Cypress Chargers are celebrating the 36th annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD) on Feb. 2, a day made to recognize and honor their athletic achievements. NGWSD was chartered by Congress in 1986 to remember Olympic volleyball player Flo Hyam, who was considered the best women's volleyball player of her time and was also known for her work to assure equality for women's sports.

In celebration of all the powerful women athletes as well as the 50th anniversary of Title IX, Chargers athletics stands by all women who have shaped and are continuing to change the landscape of sports for the better as they continue to trail blaze the way for the next generation. The inspiration to allow young girls to play sports and learn traits to develop them in all aspects of life is what this day is all about and we support any notion to let female athletes play. We are grateful for all our young women athletes who continue to do great things for us here at Cypress College.

Below are statements from our coaches and student athletes explaining what NGWSD means to them.

Margaret Mohr, Women's Basketball Head Coach

Thao Truong, Women's Basketball Player

Tanya Carbajal, Women's Basketball Player

Kaylene Fabros, Women's Tennis Player
