Women's Soccer Donates Equipment to Mali

Hamden, Conn. - The Quinnipiac women's soccer team gave back to the Mali community during this past summer. The Bobcats played their part in giving back by donating old soccer equipment, such as gear, balls, and clothing.

A club teammate of Quinnipiac freshman Taylor Healey (Milford, Conn.) travelled to Mali over the summer for volunteer work and was able to distribute the Quinnipiac donated gear.

"Community Service provides my players with a platform to demonstrate that there are more dimensions to their lives than just playing soccer," said Head Coach Dave Clarke. "In contributing to programs in countries such as Mali or working with Special Olympics, it affords my players the opportunity to give back to that segment of the soccer community that need help the most. It reinforces the concept that playing for Quinnipiac University at the Division I level is quite a privilege."

Quinnipiac hosts their first conference game of the season against Central Connecticut State University at the Quinnipiac Soccer field in Hamden, Conn. on Sunday, Sept. 26 at noon.
