Boston College Women’s Soccer Team has enjoyed getting a child facing serious and chronic illnesses through Team Impact for a number of years. This year, they have Lily, who has been their lucky mascot and impacted the team in a number of ways.
Lily joins Boston College Women’s Soccer Team with her own locker and uniform!
Coach Foley lists the many benefits of community service:
- It gives different players a chance to lead, particularly those who get less playing time.
- For players with long term injuries like ACL tears, joining the Team Impact team gives them a different perspective and gives them something to focus on since they can’t practice.
- Players are very busy so organizing community service through the team allows them to participate.
- It shows that coach cares more than just winning.
Holly Confalone, a midfielder on the team, fills us in on Lily’s impact on the team.
