The first women’s soccer alumni game was a winner, with 30 players and one assistant coach returning to campus for a soccer game with new players.
The event kicked off April 26, 2014 with a welcome and campus tour, followed by the alumni soccer game and a barbecue lunch. Some returning student-athletes and coaches got an early start on the celebration with a pre-game gathering at Java City on campus the night before the match, and enjoyed reminiscing and catching up.
“The weekend was a great success, not just because we all got to play a great game and eat some food, but it allowed the program to have current players connect with the alumni,” said Coach Brian Person. “Our program has always been about the relationships and sharing the love of Christ with one another. I hope to make this an annual event!”
