Over the summer the FIFA World Cup brought soccer to the attention of people around the world, including many MSU students. The MSU women’s intramural soccer team has benefitted from the increased interest in the sport, with more than 40 girls on the team this year.
Team captain Jenna Pinto, a junior from Colorado, expressed her team’s interest in this upcoming season: “All the girls are pumped for the season this year; it’s going to be awesome.” This upcoming fall season will have a few games, which will be announced on their Facebook group “Women’s Soccer at MSU.”
While practice times are not yet determined, each night during the school week at 5 p.m., the men’s and women’s soccer teams meet on Roskie Field for social soccer and working on their skills. Everyone is welcome to come by and play with the team, new players as well as veterans. Send Pinto an email at “firstname.lastname@example.org” if you’re interested to find out more information.
This is the first big year for the women’s team. “This is the season where we start fresh,” Pinto said. With the large size of the team and the high energy of everyone involved, the team is looking forward to a successful season.
Practice times: Tuesdays & Thursdays 5-7 p.m. on Roskie Fields.
