Jennifer Sterling: 6-on-6 Girls Basketball in Iowa

April 26, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

For most of the 20th cenury, Iowa was known for its devotion to a unique form of women’s sport known as 6-on-6 girls’ basketball. As other states abandoned 6-on-6 in the 1970s, Iowa remained committed to this half-court game until 1993, when the final 6-player championship was held. This multi-media presentation recounts Iowa’s 6-on-6 history, connects it to the development of girls’ and women’s sport in the United States, and welcomes audience members to share their own stories and collections.
