Thank you Coach Martin, Coach Sluder, TCR soccer players, and parents for coordinating a ‘thank you’ for our Seniors: Katie, Gloria, Caroline, and Nola!
This season – or lack thereof – is not only a loss of great competition, great opportunity to shine (for older players AND new), but also a loss of spending time with our best friends .. with our mentors .. with our extended family. All of the girls experienced this, and now we get to look to the future.
As Coach Martin said today, we “..have a bigger family”.
A GoFundMe campaign has been created to help the Howell family in their time of need. This was created by UNCC Housing and Resident Life (“HRL”) and has already been quite successful. If anyone from the TCR soccer family wishes to support this the link is HERE.
Before last night’s game versus AC Reynolds, a statement about Riley Howell from his family was read to the crowd. And, the flag was at half mast and a moment of silence was held in his honor. It was a lovely tribute to a special young man whose life was taken from us too early.
The Asheville Citizen-Times posted an article about the tribute. A link can be found HERE.
