Celebrating Women's Soccer 1995–1997
On behalf of C Club, the alumni athletes’ association, and Calvin Athletics, we would like to invite you and your family to Calvin for special recognition of the great teams on which you played. This event is part of a special C Club program, “The Traditions Game,” in which we celebrate, with the entire Calvin community, one of many important memories in the Knights' rich athletic history.
Our goal for “The Traditions Game” is to help generate maroon-and-gold school spirit among current students and alumni. Will you help us do that?
You and your family members will have the opportunity to tour—and play in—the VanNoord Arena.
11:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
You and your families are invited to the hospitality suite during the men’s junior varsity and varsity games. You will also receive free tickets in case you want to sit in the stands. During halftime of the varsity game, you will be recognized on the main floor.
Please let us know if you are coming!
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 616-526-6142 with your name, the names of your guests, the event you will attend and contact information.
Please consider attending and reach out to other team members to encourage them to come back to enjoy Calvin that day, as well.
The expectations for the 1996 women’s soccer season were high coming off an undefeated ’95 season. The addition of eight first-year players gave the depth needed to continue a winning tradition. We faced some of the toughest competition at the start of our season, competing against regionally ranked Wooster and Rhodes. Highlighting the season was traveling to Memphis, Tennessee and taking home a pair of victories and a lot of great memories. The weekend trip to Tennessee gave our team the experience and unity to come back and face the MIAA competition with confidence. We allowed only one tie and one loss as we went through the MIAA schedule. The race for first place was close all season between Calvin, Kalamazoo and Hope, but a 2-0 victory in our last game against Hope clinched our second MIAA championship in two years. Losing only three seniors, the women’s soccer team looks to pursue a third-straight MIAA championship in 1997.
