One of the best parts of playing a sport is the life-long friendships and bonds that come from it. During these unprecedented times, it's hard for students to find safe ways to continue to be social and build these bonds. The Lady Soccer team found a great way to connect, have fun, and stay safe all at the same time! They enjoyed a beautiful afternoon together at Patterson’s Fruit Farm in Chesterland doing a team-building scavenger hunt and painting pumpkins.
