LOS ANGELES – In addition to the eleven players on the field and the 31 on the roster, there was another constant in a Loyola Marymount women’s soccer uniform this fall. Sixth grader, Sophia Carter, an aspiring soccer player in her own right, rooted on her Lions from the sidelines throughout the 2017 season.
On Nov. 29, 2017, thanks to Team Impact, a national nonprofit that connects children facing serious and chronic illnesses to local college athlete teams, forming life-long bonds and life-changing outcomes, Sophia officially signed with the Lions as a member of the team.
The entire team was present as Head Coach Michelle Myers welcomed Sophia and handed her the paperwork necessary to join the team.
