Agnes Scott

Agnes Scott College Athletics has officially entered into a partnership agreement with the Atlanta Dream of the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) as announced on Saturday afternoon, April 24, 2021.

Woodruff Athletic Complex, home to the Scotties’ six NCAA Division III athletic programs, will become the official practice facility for the Atlanta Dream for the 2021 WNBA season.

“We are excited the Atlanta Dream have chosen Agnes Scott as their home and welcome them to campus, and to the greater Decatur community,” said Agnes Scott director of athletics Markesha M. Henderson. “This collaboration provides an opportunity to elevate women’s sports on all levels and is just the starting point for what I see as a future growth for both of our organizations.”

The partnership has been in the works for the better part of three years, but the Dream’s commitment to speaking out about equity and justice initiatives aligned perfectly with the vision Agnes Scott’s new athletic director has for the department moving forward.
