Competing in Division 1 NCAA athletics takes more than talent – it takes dedication, determination, and a willingness to get back up anytime you miss the shot. Competing amid a pandemic comes with its own set of obstacles. This is the time to rally behind our student athletes! This, Bobcats, is the time to rise.
Make a Gift to Support OHIO Soccer
In 2020, despite the pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic, OHIO Soccer demonstrated their determination on and off the field, finishing the season with four athletes named All-MAC and 10 athletes named Academic All-MAC, while maintaining a 3.5 team GPA.
As they continue through their 2021 season, we are asking them every day to give their all as students and as athletes. And today, we’re reaching out to ask you to stand with them through a gift of any amount to help fund team travel, gear, and equipment. Your gift supports these students as they grow as athletes and as young women, learning to lead both on and off the field.
Help us reach our fundraising goal of $15,000.
"There is no other place I’d rather be than here at OHIO! The soccer team means the world to me and has pushed me to become the best student-athlete I can be. We take a lot of pride in being the best—not just on the field but in the classroom as well. I’m beyond excited to be a Bobcat and can't wait to get started this season!" –Madison Clayton, Mid-field, Graduate Student from Waynesburg, PA.
