BPD Unveils its All-Women’s Hoop Team - Women in Blue!!!

Community Involvement: The Reggie Lewis Center recently hosted an all-girls sports festival and the women of the BPD were in the house representing and unveiling the BPD’s latest creation: an all-women’s hoop team called Women in Blue. Playing in front of a crowd of well over a hundred fans, the BPD’s all-female squad, led by point guard Deputy Nora Baston, took on a girl’s AAU team called the Show Stoppers who just happen to be coached by Boston Police Officer Kenny Grubbs. Everybody loves Kenny!!! The game – per usual – was less about the final score and more about the relationships made. Said Deputy Baston: “In addition to playing basketball, the women on our team want to be difference makers. We want to be role models for the young girls in our community and we want them to know we’re here for them whenever they need us.”
