SAINT LEO, Fla. – Saint Leo University will recognize National Girls and Women in Sports Day when they host a FREE sports clinic on the morning of Feb. 25 before the softball team's doubleheader with Embry-Riddle, where Tampa Bay Area native and 2016 Olympic Gold Medalist Melanie Margalis, will be in attendance.
The day will start with a sports clinic for elementary and middle school boys and girls on the University Soccer Field at 10:00 a.m. This event will expose participants to a variety of sports and will teach introductory developmental skill by Saint Leo NCAA student-athletes.
