Page 8, Cloverdale Reveille, December 31, 1997 Rise In Women's Sports Helps Focus On Girls (NAPS)---From the proliferation of women's sporting events in the 1996 Olympic games, to the forma- tion of the Women's National Basketball Association, it's clear that the focus on women's sports is on the rise. This focus and promo- tion is having an effect on girls, as well, leading to increased partici- pation, funding and support of high school girls' sports. Twenty-five years ago, the chances of a girl participating in high school sports was 1 in 27. Statistics from the National Federation of State High School Associations show that, today, one in three girls participate in high school sports. According to the Women's Sports Foundation, these increases are bolstered by increased funding and the rising number of women athletes who have become role models for young girls. One such role model is Cheryl Miller, Olympic Gold medalist and coach of the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury, who has been a pioneer at breaking new ground for female athletes. "When I was growing up, there weren't a lot of role models show- ing young girls how far they could go playing sports," said Miller. "In many cases, girls' teams didn't exist for sports like soccer and hockey. Today, that's 31 MILLION GIRLS PLAY TEAM SPORTS Volleyball  8.9 Million Softball  8 Million Baskeltll IaaaaJln 7.7 Million Soccer i 4.4 Million Olher i 2 Millmn Source: Notional Federal of State High School Athle/U, sociation, changing, in part due to the increased profile of professional leagues," Miller said. In addition to showing girls what they can do on the court, Miller is heading up a new cam- paign called "we're going to win you over!" to help promote high school girls' sports. Sponsored by store brands--health and beauty care products sold under the store's selected name--the pro- gram provides high school coaches and athletes with funding and resources to strengthen their sports programs and promote teams in their communities. The campaign is supported by the' Women's Sports Foundation. Miller will be joined on the "we're going to win you over!" team by four other well-known athletes including basketball player Ruthie Bolton Holifield, softball player Lisa Fernandez, soccer player Kristine Lilly and beach volleyball player Liz Masakayan. Girls' high school coaches and their teams have a chance to win an appear- ance and fund-raiser by one of these athletes by collecting store brand health and beauty care product labels from retailers in their communities. In addition, a portion of selected store brand health and beauty care products sold during February and March will go toward high school girls' sports programs throughout the country. Store brands and the Women's Sports Foundation hope to raise up to $1 million through the pro- gram for girls high school sports. "I think it's great that America's retailers are banding together to help win over new fans and support girls' sports pro- grams, which may have previous- ly been overlooked," said Miller. "Millions of people buy store brands from their local drug store, grocery or discount store every day, including me. Now, those purchases will go toward making a difference for girls' athletic pro- grams in their communities," Miller said.
