Womens Soccer, Club Teams Take to Shoveling South Fields
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – Members of
the Northern Arizona women’s soccer team partnered with
the NAU club sports teams on Tuesday to begin shoveling some of the
feet of snow covering the south intramural fields on the Northern
Arizona campus. Though the wide and deep fields of snow proved a
dubious task to trek through, the athletes did their part to start
the process of uncovering the fields for use in the Spring.
Along with the two-time defending Big Sky Champion women’s soccer team, members of the men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s soccer, rugby and ultimate frisbee club teams brought their shovels to the intramural fields to begin breaking through the snow-turned-ice that accumulated during record storms in late January. The various athletes worked into the early evening to chip away at the ice and allow for snow plows to move some of the accrual.
“Campus recreation has been very kind in allowing us to use the fields this year and we wanted to show a little appreciation along with the other club sports,” women’s soccer head coach Andre Luciano said. “It is good community service for us to do within the campus, and hopefully we made a little dent. We’re happy to do anything to help campus recreation and the students.”
