Big hit



Ten-year-old Acadia LeBlanc learns volleyball skills from Thoroughbred
Laura Olstad ’07 as part of National Girls and Women in Sports Day. Along
with offering a variety of sports clinics for area girls, Skidmore hosted keynote
speaker Carla Overbeck, the National Soccer Hall of Famer who captained the 1996 gold-medalist US Olympic team and the 1999 World Cup–winning team. Participants also joined Skidmore students in cheering on the home team at women’s basketball games, and shared lunch with Skidmore athletes. The
sports day, now in its twenty-first year, commemorates Olympic volleyballer
Flo Hyman, who died in 1986. —SR
