COLUMBUS, Ohio – After the spring exhibition game April 17 between the Ohio State women’s soccer team and Grand Valley State, both teams helped reach out to the community, conducting a clinic for 40 girl scouts.

“The clinic was exciting and all of the girl scouts were eager to learn new things about soccer,” Ohio State’s Paige Maxwell said. “The players on both teams did a great job teaching and working the clinic and we enjoyed sharing our knowledge of the game with the girls.”

After the girl scouts came and watched the exhibition between the Buckeyes and the Lakers, the teams helped educate the girl scouts on many of the technical and physical aspects of the sport on the indoor field at Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Each girl scout received an Ohio State badge and the experience proved to be rewarding for everybody involved.

“The girl scouts were excited to be there and were a lot of fun to be with,” Ohio State defender Liz Sullivan added. “The practiced passing accuracy and learned to juggle. The whole group did a great job and I hope they enjoyed the clinic as much as we did.”

The Buckeyes wrap up their spring schedule at 1 p.m. May 1 at West Virginia.
