IE Soccer Game - Faculty vs Students
To close out the Spring semester the IE family played a faculty vs students soccer game! Both the students and the faculty left a little blood, and tears on the field. After a nail-biting 45 minutes, the students came out victorious in a close 4 to 3 final score. Both teams played very well and kept it mostly clean (although there were a few fouls on both teams), but a semesters worth of exams, homework, and projects might have been more of a motivation for the students to beat their professors. Get ready for the rematch this upcoming fall! Also, Look out for more information on different sports games against the faculty next semester!
