Support women’s soccer

Randy Waldrum | Monday, April 19, 2004

On Friday at 7 p.m., the Mexican national team will take on the Notre Dame women’s soccer team at Alumni Stadium.The Mexican national team recently qualified for the summer Olympics in Athens, and they are bringing their full Olympic Team to campus. Monica Gonzalez, a former Notre Dame player, will be playing with Mexico.The reason that I’m writing, however, is to ask that all of you paint your faces, put on your Irish colors (Mexico’s colors are green), and come support the Irish in this big event. We’ve played the Mexican Team the past three seasons, and over 1,800 Mexican supporters have come to Alumni and made us the visitors in our own field. They’ll have the drums playing and the Mexican flags flying high, so we really could use the “Leprechaun Legion” at this gameAll Notre Dame students get in free with their student IDs, so I’m personally asking for your support for our spring season finale.
