Men's Soccer team ready for European tour

Randolph’s men’s soccer team is embarking on a European tour ahead of their fall 2013 season.
The men's soccer team practiced on campus for a week in preparation for their European tour.
Tomorrow, head coach Bryan Waggoner and 21 student-athletes will depart for London where they will spend more than a week seeing sights, competing in matches against international teams, and observing professional soccer games.

The team took a similar trip three years ago, and Waggoner said it was an incredible way for the team to bond, improve their skills, and have an intercultural experience. He looks forward to seeing that happen again.

“We saw our team grow tremendously on our last European soccer tour in 2010. The 2013 tour provides an outstanding opportunity for the team to further develop their team chemistry, and it will be a great way to launch our upcoming season. I am confident that this team with 14 seniors, a strong core of returning players, and energetic first-year student-athletes will continue to excel.”

Throughout the trip, the WildCat Athletics Facebook page will post photos that Waggoner sends in as the group tours England.
