Washburn University celebrates 10 years of soccer

This season, the Washburn Lady Blues soccer program is celebrating their 10th year.

Watch the Lady Blues take on the University of Central Oklahoma Bronchos at 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26 in Yager Stadium at Moore Bowl and receive a commemorative Washburn Sesquicentennial soccer scarf celebrating 10 years of Washburn soccer. (The scarf giveaway begins when gates open at 5 p.m. and are available while supplies last.)

In conjunction with Homecoming this weekend, members of the Lady Blues from the first 10 seasons are back in Topeka for a soccer reunion. More than 30 former players are expected to be back this weekend for Homecoming festivities.

This soccer celebration is one of a series of events leading up to Washburn’s sesquicentennial in 2015. For more information, visit
