MATADORS NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS

Matadors Soccer Programs “Think Pink”
Derek Diesner
Oct. 7th, 2013

YUMA, AZ – Both the men’s and women’s soccer team are coming together this month to help raise awareness of Breast Cancer. With October being “Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” the soccer teams will be sporting pink for the entire month.
 
“We are excited about the opportunity to raise money and awareness about breast cancer this month. Our players are proud to participate and we hope the community will join us this week,” said head coach Kenny Dale.
 
The men’s team will wear pink shoelaces for the entire month of October, and will also wear pink socks for all home games during the month of October.
 
“We are also planning on raffling off two pink soccer balls at tomorrow’s (Tuesday’s) game with signatures of all players,” said assistant coach Sarah Ramirez.
 
The men’s team will sign one ball and the women’s team will sign another ball to be raffled off. Raffle tickets for the drawing are $2 each and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to breast cancer research at the end of the month. The remainder of the money will be raised for the Matador Athletic Association.
 
“I think this was an excellent idea by our soccer teams. As we all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and this is a great way to help raise funds for such a worthy cause,” said Athletics Director Jerry Smith.
 
Up next for the Matadors and Lady Matadors is a home match tomorrow (Tuesday) against Gateway Community College. The women will get things started at 4:30pm and the men will follow at 7pm. Both matches will be played at the AWC Soccer Field on the campus of Arizona Western College.
