NEW LONDON, Conn. – With several alumni returning to campus this weekend, the Connecticut College women's soccer program is teaming up with former standout defender Mackenzie Kingston '18 to host a "Soccer Without Borders Game" when it welcomes Bowdoin to Freeman Field on Saturday morning at 11:30 a.m.
Since graduating from Connecticut College in 2018 and helping lead the Camels to a NESCAC championship and three NCAA Tournament appearances in four years, Kingston moved cross country to Oakland and currently works as a Girls Program Associate for Soccer Without Borders, which is a non-profit organization that uses soccer to create positive change for underserved youth in the United States. Through free, innovate youth development programs, Soccer Without Borders helps young players achieve growth, inclusion, and personal success.
The Camel women's soccer team will be collecting donations to support the non-profit organization and Kingston's efforts at a table which is slated to be located on the corner of the field closest to the Camel bench at Saturday's match versus the Polar Bears.
In addition, fans and supporters can make a donation to provide further growth online by clicking on the link below.
