Sports fans at the University of Virginia are learning more about college athletics.

UVA Director of Athletics Carla Williams gave some insight into the landscape of college sports at the More Than A Score event Saturday, November 10. Hundreds of people showed up at Alumni Hall to hear Williams speak about her personal experiences as a student-athlete and her knowledge of topics on intercollegiate sports.

Williams says for some people, sports leads to higher education.

“I’m a prime example of the fact that an athletic scholarship was my vehicle to go to college, and from that first athletic scholarship I was able to get my master’s degree and PHD because I was a student-athlete. And I think our student-athletes have a wonderful opportunity, especially here,” she said.

Those in the audience also got to play sports trivia to win UVA apparel and prizes.
