In Fall 2014, student Babiker Suliman approached soccer fanatic and IT staffer Erik Townsend to see if he would be willing to coach a student soccer team. Townsend helped him with the paperwork and procedures needed to have the team certified as an official student club, and enlisted the assistance of Tom Beveridge with practice sessions. Townsend points out that the team has been very dedicated to getting the team set up and moving forward, even putting up their own money for uniforms. You can see them practicing some days on the field below the Wynn Center.
The team won its first match on Sunday, 6-5 in a contest at Eno Middle School. Thanks to Babiker and his 17 teammates for their dedication and perseverance, and congratulations on your victory!
