It might be off season for the Trinity Western University Spartans Women's Soccer Team, but they are still finding ways to make headlines. Donning their team colors, the Spartans shuffled out onto the ice rink at the Langley Events Centre on Sunday January 17th and dropped the puck for the Langley Chiefs' game against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. The Chiefs invited the women's team to honour the Spartans' on winning their 3rd national soccer title, which they achieved in November when they defeated the Montreal Carabins 1-0 in the gold-medal match of the 2009 CIS women's soccer championship.

"It is always great to be part of someone else's show," says Director of Athletics Murray Hall. "Of course, we want a 'rematch' where the Chief goalie tosses up the opening game ball for our basketball team," Hall congenially adds.

Finding more ways to be involved with the community, Spartan athletes will also be helping with the kids-oriented "Try-it" sports event, held at the Langley Event Centre February 8th from 1- 5 pm in conjunction with the Olympic Torch Relay celebration.

Hall concludes, "Spartan student-athletes are role models and leaders in serving local and global communities."
