The men’s and women’s soccer teams honored its seniors this past Saturday at Highmark Stadium, although both have one more home game to finish up their regular season.
13 players starred for their final time on the other side of the Monongahela River. From the men’s team: Andre Bennett, Marc Bentley, Ryan Daniels, Juan Somoza, Ricardo Dip, Trenton Fowler and Jesse Vates. The women’s team honored: Tatum Fabian, Asia Pennock-Franke, Audra Lewis, Lauren Bower, Shayla Gebhardt and Abby Magliocca.
Both teams are losing a lot of talent to the year, with both starting goalkeepers for the men moving on. On the women’s side, starters Fabian, Pennock-Franke, Magliocca and Bower all played their final River States Conference game.
Student fans who attended the game received a free tee shirt in support of their fellow Pioneers during their last regular season game at Highmark Stadium.
Students were animated and cheered on their peers, decked out in face paint and their free shirts. The teams also cheered on their counterparts in support.
Both teams will be back in action for their final conference game at Indiana University East before coming back to Pittsburgh for a last, and no doubt emotional, non-conference matchup against Washington Adventist on Halloween.
