Challenger League gets activities all year

Editor, the Advocate:

Thanks to UHV women's and men's soccer teams, The Challenger League of Victoria is a sports league that provides an opportunity for mentally and physically challenged residents of our city to participate in organized sports activities throughout the year.

During our soccer season, the UHV women's and men's soccer teams volunteered to hold a practice and attend a Saturday game where they assisted the athletes on the soccer field. I want to take this opportunity to thank these fine young men and women who came out and sacrificed their Thursday and Saturday to help the Challenger League athletes enjoy their soccer season. They did an outstanding job in teaching and encouraging our athletes.

Their kindness to our athletes is greatly appreciated. Thanks also to the UHV soccer coaching staff for encouraging their athletes to participate in this worthwhile activity.
