Eagles Encourage Contributions of Soccer Items

Two Eagles women's soccer players have a goal to take their passion for the game and to serve those in need.

Julia DiLoreto '20 and Ella Waldspurger '20 are volunteers with the organization, Pass it Back Soccer.

"We have been working with this organization since it started a few months ago," Waldspurger said. "We have been playing soccer since we were four years old, and providing proper equipment was never a problem for either of our families."

Pass it Back Soccer was organized by two other high school students, who Waldspurger and DiLoreto know.

"They knew of kids playing with cleats that were too small and falling apart," Waldspurger explained. "It bothered them that these kids couldn't play to the best of their ability based on something they couldn't control. From that experience, Pass It Back Soccer was born."

On Tuesday, September 5 and Wednesday, September 6, the Eagles soccer teams are collecting gently used soccer equipment, such as cleats and shin guards, which will go to Pass it Back Soccer. JV games start at 5:30 and Varsity games start at 7:30 both days.

Waldspurger added, "We believe everyone should have proper equipment to play and enjoy the game of soccer in a safe way."
