ELKINS, WV - After a short hiatus the annual women's soccer Alumni match makes its return! On a beautiful Saturday morning, the weekend of SpringFest and the annual Athletics Award Banquet, the front lawn of D&E campus was a buzz of activity. Nine alumni players laced up their cleats to face off to the current Lady Senators in a competitive 8v8 match. In true Senator fashion the game was close, and the alumni put forth a valiant effort. But after two 20 minute periods, the final result was 4-3 in favor of the current Lady Senators.
Coach Ovalle says, "We are committed to making Alumni relations a priority for our program, and to create more alumni events for the future. We feel the alumni are a part of our team here at D&E." That said, the Lady Senators are looking forward to the next alumni match… and maybe, just maybe, the alumni will take the win.
