This past weekend, I was fortunate enough to partner with the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union (IGHSAU) and attend the Iowa Girls High School State Basketball Championship. I not only got to witness great girls basketball but promote my book and what it means to be an #IowaGirl.
It was the 100th-year celebration of the tournament, which could not be more fitting for the occasion. My mother would have been so thrilled to see how her story has changed girls basketball in Iowa and to see how it’s transformed today.
My aunt Glenda, who played with my mom on the 1956 championship team, was able to attend the tournament with me as well.
