Kennesaw State’s women’s soccer program has established itself as one of the pre-eminent teams in the Atlantic Sun Conference, with two titles to show for their work.
Now the Owls are ready for their next big challenge.
Coach Rob King and six of his players will head to South America on Friday to conduct a two-week soccer camp at the Colegio Menor San Francisco de Quito in Ecuador. It will be a far different culture than the summer camps King and his players conduct on the Kennesaw State campus. ...
Kennesaw State’s Bagwell College of Education has collaborated with the Universidad de San Fransico de Quito to give students opportunities to study abroad and gain teaching experience and class credit at the English-speaking Colegio Menor.
And the first-time soccer camps are another way of reaching out.
“We want to put on a fantastic (camp) and be invited back,” King said. “Ecuador is a soccer-playing country, and it’s very traditional.”
King has led Kennesaw State soccer to eight seasons of 10 or more wins in his nine years at the helm. He’s also guided the Owls to three regular-season Atlantic Sun titles and two tournament championships. Copyright 2011 The Marietta Daily Journal. All rights reserved.
