Kemrer listens Larger-than-ever crowd fills Penn's Inn for Women in Sports DayThe Penn College Athletic Department held its annual Women in Sports Day on Sunday, drawing a record crowd for the seven-year history of the event. “It was nice to see the very large group of people enjoying our special day,” said Lisa J. Worth, coordinator for club sports, intramural sports and marketing for athletics, who said seven alumni, six recruits and 13 guests were among those attending the Penn’s Inn event. Brandy L. Krause, a member of the women’s soccer and dance teams, and Scott E. Kennell, athletic director, offered opening remarks. Lunch was provided by Hospitality and Conference Services. Women’s volleyball coach Bambi A. Hawkins was the emcee for the event and Erica L. Logan (women’s basketball assistant coach) was the featured speaker. Logan spoke on several topics: explaining how coaching is the next best thing to putting on her jersey, shorts and sneakers for another intercollegiate game; how players and coaches alike need to stay positive in everything they do; and about leaving it all on the court or field. “You don’t ever want say to yourself at a later date, ‘What if?'” She also encouraged risk, hard work and lifetime friendships with teammates. The day concluded with the coaches remarking on their teams’ players, goals, accomplishments and honors. Photos by Michael S. Fischer, student photographer
