UA Cossatot Colts Soccer Team Receives Donation
October 14, 2016
UA Cossatot Colts Soccer team accepted a donation of $250 from Smartphone EMT.
Franklin Bahena and Esteban Ochoa presented the check to the soccer team and it was accepted by Dr. Steve Cole, Chancellor.
The soccer team plays in the TSCL league which includes colleges and universities from UT Arlington and south to San Antonio. This is the third season for the Colts and the team depends largely on donations and sponsorships from the community. The players are coached by Marco Garcia and Saul Cruz, who have donated their time and talent to help the team be successful. Last week, the soccer team played at Scrapper Stadium in Nashville against Texas Tech but came up one goal short of a victory.
The team is sponsored by Erika Buenrrostro, UA Cossatot Admissions Advisor.
“I am excited to be a part of the Colts Soccer team,” said Buenrrostro. “With students who graduate from a high school program that has won 5 state championships, obviously there was a great interest at this level. Student engagement is a great component to success in the classroom. Our players are engaging in a great sport while also receiving a quality education.”
