Play like a girl.

Athletics is more than competition. It's about building resilience, instilling confidence, committing to yourself and to your team, and pushing limits to discover your personal best. Agnes Irwin's rich athletic history and dedication to our pre-collegiate student-athletes is a great source of pride for the Owls — you can feel (and hear) that spirit on our sidelines as we cheer them on.
