Terry Babilla, President of BSN SPORTS, commented, "A year ago, we launched Women of Will with our long-time partner, Under Armour, to serve as the first national sponsorship program for women's high school sports teams. This effort recognizes and supports high school women – both at the coach/AD and student-athlete level – who possess the ambition and defiant swagger to overcome any obstacle. Consistent with this goal, we are thrilled to recognize five athletic directors from across the country who represent the 'best of' the WOW program. We are honored to support them and their programs and look forward to another year successful year for the WOW program."
In addition to the Hall of Fame Awards, the Women of Will Graduation Awards recognize one female athlete from every WOW school at the end of the year.
