Atomic City Update: Girl's soccer takes the field for a good cause

Often, the benefits of sports are seen as helping an individual gain more self-confidence and developing team building skills. They are often one of the most positive parts of our society, and offer a diversion from other parts of the world.

When someone steps into a football stadium or a baseball stadium or a basketball arena, they are able to step away from the world and enjoy a different version of reality for a few, short hours.

However, there are times when sports help to accomplish great things in the outside world. That is what the Los Alamos High School girl’s soccer program will be doing this week when they host their annual ‘Kick for the Cure’ game.

Each year, the program features one home game on its schedule and uses the profits from that game to donate money to cancer research. Donations will be collected during both the junior varsity and varsity games on Tuesday against Hope Christian High School.

The action will begin with the junior varsity match at 3:30 p.m., with the varsity game to follow at 5 p.m.

This game will offer the public a chance to watch the LAHS girl’s soccer team, which has proven to be one of the top teams in the state, and at the same time help people around the world.
