As they pass the halfway point of the season, they have made bonds and friendships that will last a lifetime. 

“Making friendships with the athletes is just so amazing. They never fail to make me smile,” senior Emelyn Hayes said.

The goals for Hayes during the season as a helper are high as she hopes to “help others and create friendships.”

“I hope to have all the athletes create new and exciting memories from this year’s season,” Hayes said.

Making friendships isn’t something new for unified soccer. Some of these players have been doing this for a while, like senior player Thomas Fay, and loves soccer for the sport and for the company. Fay also got a goal vs Keene on September 28, and ‘loved it.’

“Most of us in the program have already played soccer, and it’s a good fall sport,” Fay said. 

Games don’t seem to be the favorite part of the experience, as the after meal takes the win. Senior and team member PJ. Ward ‘loves going to McDonalds’ after every game, and Fay ‘loves going to Dominos.’

“We had a game on Tuesday and it was a lot of fun,” Sophomore and team member Emily Rich said. “Even though we lost, we went out for ice cream afterwards.” 

Getting dinner is just one of the ways the team bonds. From practices to getting ice cream, it’s a great way to make friendships. Rich saw how cool it was last year and just “had to join.”

“I actually wanted to do it last year as well but the season already started,” Rich said. “It looked like so much fun.”   

Hayes also saw how much fun everyone was having and wanted to join. 

“I wanted to join unified as a way to help others, and create new friendships in a different and positive way,” Hayes said.
