The Oxford Soccer Club (OSC) rose to the occasion in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria’s devastation to portions of the United States.
The club spearheaded a fundraiser to help raise money for victims of the hurricanes.
On Oct. 3-4, the OSC 06 and 04 Girls teams each dedicated one hour of their practice to the cause by juggling a soccer ball.
Donations were made in fixed amounts or five cents per juggle.
Between the two sessions, the two groups raised nearly $1,800 to benefit victims of recent hurricanes, according to Coach Robert Herrgott.
“I am extremely impressed (by) how the girls took this idea and ran with it. Thirty-two girls raised close to $1,800 through a one-hour juggling practice. Some girls even donated their own funds. I am proud to be their coach. They did a great job,” said Herrgott.
The funds were donated to the American Red Cross last weekend.
The OSC 06 Girls team consists of Eve Herrgott, Sophia Terenzi, Anna Terenzi, Peyton Richter, Madison Mauser, Kayla Fox, Ava Bailey, Paige Rushlow, Maggie Casper, Jamie Patterson, Allison Hufstedler, Gianna Flewelling, Kitty Morris, Jayden Grunkemeyer, Braydee Elling and Peytan Rivers.
The OSC 04 Girls team consists of Avery Herrgott, Madison Hunley, Kayla Casper, Jordan Rivers, Emily Luba, Annika Jankowski, Kaitlyn Beckwith, Sophia Slayton, Elizabeth Rice, Kendall Osborne, Emily Horne, Nina Erskine, Zoe Forbes, Audrey Parker, Miranda Wyniemko and Tatum Ostrander.
