Soccer coach Erin Aubry opened the program reading an email from a fan whose daughter, a first-time soccer player, had the chance to meet with the Razorbacks after the team’s 1-0 win Sunday.The encounter was so moving to the young fans’ parents, that they took the time to contact Aubry and the soccer team to say thanks and to let them know they had made lifelong fans.Aubry and the coaches who followed all mentioned their desires for success in the playing venues, but each coach also noted that success is often measured in the classroom and in the community.
Former Razorback student-athlete Jessica Dorrell was the master of ceremonies for the event for the second consecutive year. Dorrell joined the athletic department followingher graduation and the close of her playing career.
