TPSF and NSU Men's Soccer Team Up for Winning Results

Defending MIAA regular season and tournament champions the NSU RiverHawks hosted TPSF Day Thursday, September 24, for the conference opening game. Both TPSF and the RiverHawks had a winning night.  The college team defeated nationally ranked Lindenwood University, and TPSF walked away with a little over $600 extra to donate to elementary school grants. (Due to NCAA regulations, the money raised at DeLoache Field must be donated to our younger students at Greenwood, Heritage, Cherokee, or Sequoyah.)

The action on the field wasn't the only competition Thursday night.  The elementary school that raised the most money for TPSF won a future visit from NSU RiverHawk mascot Rowdy and members of the team. Kids searched the sidelines and stands, asking for donations as well as catching people at the gate.

Heritage Elementary School earned the most money--and the privilege to welcome Rowdy and his RiverHawk friends to an assembly.

The fun didn't end there.  Members of the RiverHawks Academy teams, a branch of Tahlequah Soccer Club, walked out with the players at the beginning of the game and stood on the field as the Star Spangled Banner played.  They also scrimmaged on the college field at half time.

The NSU men’s team is committed to community. NSU Head Coach Rob Czlonka is not only last year’s Regional and MIAA Coach of the Year, he is also a coach with heart. He said, “We owe it to those coaches, teachers and mentors--who instilled discipline, passion, and a desire to achieve--to continue the chain of being good role models. As soccer players and athletes, we try to give good pictures to those kids who watch us, in the hopes that they will be inspired and challenged to develop those skills in themselves.”  Team members volunteer for PTO jog-a-thons, soccer clinics in schools, and as rec team coaches. Head Coach Rob Czlonka started a soccer academy in conjunction with Tahlequah Soccer Club and serves on their board, training area rec coaches in order to spread his passions of soccer and service.

Thank you to all who came out and supported two generous groups: TPSF and NSU Men's RiverHawks.
