KSU hosts evacuated soccer team (Marietta Daily Journal)
KENNESAW, Ga. (Sep 14, 2018) — Hurricane Florence’s assault on the Carolina coastline continued Friday afternoon, but nearly 400 miles away, the storm led to the unlikely reunion of two former high school teammates.
Coastal Carolina University’s women’s soccer team was supposed to host the University of Arkansas at Little Rock this week. But the game could not be played in South Carolina as students evacuated and the campus closed ahead of the hurricane’s arrival.
Instead, Coastal Carolina’s soccer team sought refuge in Cobb, where they took on the ladies of Little Rock at Kennesaw State University’s track and field facility.
