26 Lackawanna girls take part in Girls in Sports event

The Spring 2018 Western New York Girls in Sports (WNYGIS) event was held on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at the Buffalo Bills ADPRO Sports Field House. Twenty-six girls from Martin Road Elementary and Lackawanna Middle School were given the opportunity to participate in a variety of sports supervised by athletes from local colleges.

WNYGIS was founded by Mary Wilson in 2006. Mrs. Wilson continues to be actively involved in the event with the goal of enriching young girls' lives through involvement in sports. The Lackawanna City School District is grateful that their students were given the opportunity to participate!

Special thanks goes out to Kendra Durden from the District's YWCA Extended School Day program and Lackawanna Middle School Physical Education teacher Michael Hardy for giving up their Saturday to chaperone the girls!
