GWA Girls Youth Basketball play with the pros

On Friday, May 27 a group of girls representing GWA Girls Youth Basketball participated in the WNBA visit to the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre. Thirteen girls took part in the activities by playing a 20 minute exhibition game prior to tip-off of the headliner played by the San Antonio Silver Stars and the Connecticut Sun.

The GWA teams were also asked to assist the two WNBA teams during their pre-game drills and during the main event. Each girl was given court side access and responsibilities which included mopping the floor during breaks in the action, retrieving player warm-up uniforms and handing out drinks and towels to the professionals as they left the game. During half-time each girl threw t-shirts into the crowd and participated in a foul shooting contest.
