Oct. 29, 2000

EASTON, Pa. (www.lafayette.edu) - Lafayette College's men's and women's soccer programs are hosting a Halloween "Kick or Treat" youth clinic on Monday, Oct. 30, at Metzgar Fields in Forks Township from 6-7:30 p.m. The free soccer clinic is being run by the student-athletes and coaches from the Leopards' soccer programs.

All area youth are invited to attend, and are encouraged to arrive in costume. There will be a contest for the best costume and Halloween treats for all participants who dress in costume.

The Leopards' two-time defending Patriot League Champion men's soccer program (6-10, 4-2 Patriot League) has clinched a spot in the upcoming conference tournament and may serve as the hosts. The Lafayette women's soccer program (10-7, 1-4 Patriot League) failed to qualify for the conference tournament, but has already turned in one of the best turnarounds in the nation with eight more wins than it had two seasons ago.

The "Kick or Treat" clinic is one of the annual activities sponsored by PARDners, Lafayette Athletics' community outreach program. Other PARDners efforts have included "PARDners in Reading" and "Dr. Seuss' Birthday," elementary school based programs to promote reading, and "Freshmen Move-In," a College-wide effort in which upper-class student-athletes assist all incoming freshmen as they move into their residence halls.
