ALVA, Okla. - Winning games is just one part of a head coach's job at a university. Helping create upstanding individuals is arguably just as important. Tuesday evening at the Homestead Retirement Center in Alva, head soccer coach Kasey Mahaffey and the Northwestern Oklahoma State University women's soccer team had the pleasure of donating their time and efforts to the residents of the retirement center.
Mahaffey and her players mingled with the residents playing games such as bingo, rummikub and uno for nearly two hours. The team went a step further serving snacks and drinks while baking cookies for everyone in the room.
The girls were able to build relationships with members and, hopefully, create a few new soccer fans.
Mahaffey and her team will continue to be active and visible in the community by working at Sonic this upcoming Friday (April 20) from 1:30-7 p.m.
All donations and tips will go toward new uniforms and equipment for the next season.
