Amy Bonner Becomes First Female Referee to Officiate an Atlantic 10 MBB Game

https://atlantic10.com/news/2020/12/...ball-game.aspx

I guess we can put to rest the nonsensical notion that “women’s officials” can’t also be successful in men’s basketball.

She will not be the last. There's another female official on one of my D3 staffs, and we are part of the ACC consortium training program, and fall under Bryan Kersey also.

She also has previous D-League and WNBA experience.

Do a great job, kudos.

Screw it up, there's the door.
