She Got Game
Conversations with Evonne is proud to be a media sponsor of such an amazing league of women. All drafted by C.E.O Celia Newman who set forth to put her dreams on paper and make them come true. With her gratitude she has developed a league of enthusiasm, hard work and dedication for women who still love the game and want to play. “I just knew we needed a place to show that passion and dedication,” she said, “women come up to me all the time still thanking me for giving them the platform to do so.” The league has develop drastically since it’s first season, now have full teams of skilled women and over 10 teams in each season playing for the victory cup. The passion never ends within these floors.
Stretching across four different cities Chicago, Nashville, Huntsville and its headquarters Memphis, the league has recruited over 200 women who have decided to lace their sneakers up and leave it all on the court. Including notable players like Ashley Shields who has given Memphis and the WNBA a run for their money from playing with the Houston Comets hailing from Southwest Tennessee Community College, the RAWNESS is never ending.
The women have an area to dedicate their hearts to now and they have not come to play as some are even drafted by agents to play overseas basketball. The semi-pro league is opening doors to the big leagues, as exactly it should using its over the top potential not just for basketball, yet justice. Owner Celia Newman pays close attention to social justice issues that are taking place in America and has dedicated games to those who have passed from police brutality, in loving memory of Breonna Taylor who was gunned down in her home by Louisville,Kentucky police.
The league has even dedicated its efforts to the smaller generations as they donate funds, time and mentors to help young women and athletes who are growing into the lively hood of the game. Celia feels is it important to reach back to younger generations, for they are the key to success and our future. It is true, if we as a society create a platform for them now they would have something to build off of, as they travel the journey of becoming who they are.
