Greenhills athletes catch a Tigers game, participate in Women in Sports event
A contingent of 45 female Greenhills athletes descended on Comerica Park this week to participate in the first annual Detroit Tigers’ Women in Sports event.
In addition to being treated to a victory over the Kansas City Royals—a team the Tigers are locked in a pennant race with—the Greenhills students also had a chance, before the game, to participate in a discussion with four women collegiate athletes who now work in sports. Ten Greenhills coaches also took part in the Women in Sports event.
Greenhills Athletic Director Meg Seng said both volleyball teams, the field hockey team, and a handful of other Greenhills athletes participated.
Panelists included Fox Sports Detroit’s Lindsey Hayes, who played soccer at Winona State University; Tigers promotions coordinator Haley Kolff, a track and field athlete at Vanderbilt; Kari Gallagher, a sponsorship services coordinator for the Tigers who played softball at the University of Toledo; Keara Marks, a nursing student who plays basketball at Marygrove College; and Amy Peterson, an associate counsel with the Tigers who played rugby at Kenyon College.
“I can tell you that our girls had a great time and were very engaged with the panelists,” Seng said. “Lindsey Hayes even came up to sit with our group for a couple of innings.”
