Spartans in South America

Spartans in red in Paraguay

TWU’s women’s soccer team temporarily traded their TWU blue for Athletes in Action red as they partnered with the organization in a trip to South America.

Using the phrase, “Better than any Trophy,” women’s soccer coach Graham Roxburgh led the team in organizing several soccer clinics, a five-on-five tournament and another soccer tournament that involved more than 300 underprivileged children.

The team also served in soup kitchens and orphanages, and trained about 80 pastors and volunteers in how to run soccer clinics in their communities.
