NEW YORK – February 16, 2021 – For the second consecutive year, the New York Liberty are participating in Nike Game Growers, a program which provides seventh and eighth grade girls with tools and resources to increase girls’ participation in sports in their local communities.
The Liberty selected Amiyah Johnson and Karah Provenzano from Portchester Middle School in Portchester, New York as the team’s 2021 Game Growers Co-Captains.
Amiyah and Karah were surprised by Liberty guard and Nike athlete, Sabrina Ionescu, who sent a video congratulating them and offering advice.
Last year, the New York Liberty selected Sienna Olivares and Skylah Kemp. They created a free annual New York-based basketball camp, Positive Excellence, that also serves as a support group for older girls to mentor others and share their unique personal experiences.
