For most of the 20th century, Iowa was recognized for its devotion to a unique form of women’s sport known as 6-on-6 girls’ basketball. Generations of athletes and their fans made this game the heart of their rural communities. Join us for a panel presentation featuring Lisa Bluder (Head Coach, UI Women’s Basketball), Shelley Lucas PhD, 2001 (Associate Professor of Kinesiology, Boise State University), and Julie Goodrich Blake (Adel High School 6-on-6 player/ISU basketball player/alumna), moderated by Susan Birrell (Professor of American Studies & Sport Studies, UI). The panelists will reflect on their own experiences, the impact the game had on their lives, and the legacy of participation in sport for girls and women across Iowa.
