Athletes to Watch
“Yolanda had a great working relationship with all of the athletes, sports executives and others in our world. Every year she worked hard to make the yearly Women’s Sports Foundation dinner an inspirational night for all involved. Her tireless dedication to the Women’s Sports Foundation, and the plight of women being accepted on the fields of play was exemplary and appreciated by all of us on the WSF board.”
“I met Yo over twenty years ago when I was a sportscaster for ESPN. I was covering the WTA’s Virginia Slims tennis tournament at Madison Square Garden when she came up to me during a break and introduced herself. I was impressed by her sports knowledge and the ease with which she communicated with me. I felt an instant connection that has lasted to this day. She is truly a unique and dedicated individual. She’s a loyal and trusted friend to all women athletes…and especially to me!”
