In her speech on Day 3 of the summit, award-winning journalist and author Maria Shriver urged women to come together, saying:

I think we have never been more technologically connected and more spiritually disconnected from one another. But sports has never before had more of an impact as it does now.

Hey, we’re not sure that we can weigh in on the spiritual disconnect, but we are definitely excited about the ways we help young women as athletes connected with each other and with college coaches. We want to take a moment to celebrate connections like this one from our Instagram of our President and COO, Lisa Strasman, with Little League superstar Mo’ne Davis.
