Save the Date for the Celebration of Women's Athletics

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Save the date for the eighth annual Celebration of Women’s Athletics on Sunday, April 10, at 5 p.m. at the Carol Soffer Indoor Practice Facility.

The CWA honors current Miami female student-athletes from each of UM’s nine women’s programs for their excellence on the playing field, as well as in the classroom and community. It also recognizes some of the pioneers who have helped pave the way for the continued success of women’s athletics at Miami.

The event continues to support the Building Women Champions Campaign, which is designed to develop leaders and prepare women to be successful in life beyond athletic competition. Support of the CWA includes exclusive benefits that strengthen the impact on UM female student-athletes.

“We are excited to announce our eighth annual Celebration of Women’s Athletics,” Director of Athletics Dan Radakovich said. “It continues to be one of our signature annual events and we are grateful that so many members of the Hurricanes family are inspired to honor, celebrate and support these incredible female student-athletes and all they have accomplished.”

The CWA was founded in 2015 by University of Miami Board of Trustees members Hilarie Bass, Barbara Havenick and Laurie Silvers. The proceeds from the CWA are used to provide UM female student-athletes with first-class opportunities to compete, study and become the next generation of leaders.

“We are thrilled to once again celebrate our student-athletes at the Celebration of Women’s Athletics,” said Jennifer Strawley, Deputy Athletics Director/Chief Operating Officer and Senior Woman Administrator. “This event allows us to celebrate the fantastic accomplishments of our phenomenal female student-athletes. The support we continue to receive from the Miami community for this event and for the Building Women Champions Campaign is transformational.”
