Throw Like a Girl: Hartley plans historical presentation Feb. 25 at CCHS

WINFIELD — The Cowley County Historical Society Museum will be host to a presentation by Laura Hartley, director of the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame in Wichita. This program, given in conjunction with the Kansas Humanities Council, will be at 2 p.m. Feb. 25 at the museum, located at 1011 Mansfield St. in Winfield. Hartley’s subject, “Throw Like a Girl,” is a topic that will be of interest to many. She will share the history of female athletes and their contributions to equality in sports. Many female athletes in Kansas have fascinating tales of perseverance, hard work and success on levels where they previously were barred from competition. Hartley’s presentation will look at women pioneers in the world of sports, such as Margaret Thompson Murdock, who was the first U.S. woman to compete in a shooting competition in the Olympics, and Kendra Wecker, the first girl to reach the finals of the NFL’s Punt, Pass and Kick competition. Both women hailed from Kansas. Hartley earned her master’s degree in public history from Wichita State University, where she focused her research on museum education. “Throw Like a Girl” is part of the Kansas Humanities Council’s Kansas Stories Speakers Bureau, featuring presentations and discussions that connect communities with history, traditions and ideas to strengthen civic life. For more information about this event, call the Cowley County Historical Society at (620) 221-4811....
