Do you mean the game against Cincinnati? If so the stats summary listed the officials and Amy Bonner was the female official working that game.

Seeing who are partners were and having heard her name before, she would be part of the ACC consortium.

She is in the Big East I believe (still the ACC Consortium) but has been for a few years (I know you know this but not everyone else does).

A couple of women got hired in the B1G Consortium too this summer. So very interesting, I just hope they hired them so they will not fail. Amy has done well it appears.

Peace

I love seeing this development in basketball and in football (and in maybe other sports as well). It's one thing to have female officials. It's another thing altogether to have female officials working men's contests, because like it or not, that's where the vast majority of viewership (and hence visibility) is. That's the golden ticket to recruiting good new officials (which we desperately need nationwide) from a whole half of the population that the avocation tends to overlook.

I think we're within 2-3 years of having a female white hat in the NFL that has earned the promotion solely on merit. Wouldn't that be something. I'm actually surprised I haven't seen one yet in a college football TV game, though maybe it has happened and that channel just wasn't in my cable package!

Amanda Sauer (now Amanda Sauer-Cook) wore the white hat for an Ohio State spring game.
Here is the link to that article about Amanda. She is now a center judge in the XFL and a part of the NFL Officiating Development Program.

As an aside, I worked a D3 game where the white hat was the wife of a current NFL official. I would not be too surprised to see more women in football, including wearing the white hat.

My daughter played many years of interscholastic basketball in middle school (and travel basketball) and high school as well as several years of top level AAU up and down the East Coast from Maine to Virginia, as well as an international tournament in Spain, ending her "career" before college in the early 2000's (probably a total of about 250 games with "board certified" officials).

I don't believe that she ever had more than a handful (meaning low single digits) of female officials in all of her games.

When I started officiating back in the early 1980's, my local board, that officiated both boys and girls interscholastic games, was 100% male. I'm guessing that now about 10% of our local members are female, and we've had a female president, and a female interpreter.

Nice to see times changing.
