Soccer club raises dough

The SC4 Women’s Soccer Club sold baked goods on Valentine’s Day to raise money. According to Chelsea Borkovich, the leader of the Women’s Soccer Club, the food was donated by the club members and proceeds of the sale would be used to fund club activities later in the year.

The Soccer club consists of roughly 15 members, who according to Borkovich come from many different places.

“People come from all around:” said Borkovich during the bake sale. “Harbor beach, Northern, Port Huron [and] Imlay City,” Just to name a few. The club plans on recruiting in spring, when they may potentially do a car wash to raise money.

Last season the team played matches against teams at Eastern Michigan University, Saginaw Valley State University, Oakland University and University of Michigan Dearborn.

“We did really well last year,” said Borkovich. “We won like four games, tied a few games, and the ones we lost we only lost by a few points, like one goal.”

The club plans to attend a tournament in Canton in June, and hopes to start practicing in the spring, scrimmaging against other teams before summer. Borkovich explains that the team plans to recruit at various high schools to start up again at the end of the summer, leading into the fall semester. “Then we’ll have some new players.” Borkovich said.
