Throughout time there have been several individuals who have effected history with their profound writings, speeches, talents and abilities. We go on daily not even thinking about the sacrifices these individuals made to make the life we live better. Paying homage to these people isn’t something we think about doing on a daily basis, but should be.
In honor of the Women’s Blue Chip Basketball League’s 10th Year Anniversary and Women’s History Month, we will be honoring 10 Women “Trailblazers” who have paved the way for women’s basketball. These ladies have been through many trials and have prevailed to greatness in a male dominated sport. These 10 women give hope to young girls who inspire to be professional players, coaches, and team owners.
This years “Trailblazers” include: Nancy Lieberman, Cynthia Cooper Dyke, Dr. Geri Kay Hart, Lynette Woodard, Lisa Leslie, Sarah Campbell, Dr. Robelyn Garcia, Kandi “KC” Conda, E.C. Hill and Tamika Catchings. We will be highlighting each individual honoree throughout the week on the WBCBL website and social media sites. We will also honor the women at the WBCBL National Tournament in Greenville, SC (July 31st – August 2nd)
The Women’s Blue Chip Basketball League would like to thank these women for their determination to change the game of women’s basketball. We salute you and congratulate you on being a part of history!
