An Open Letter to the Clemson Community:

Friday night August 29th was yet another special night at Historic Riggs Field. We set a state attendance record of 4,120 which was the most spectators to ever watch a college women’s soccer match. It is always great to be part of a record setting event, but the night was much more than that. It was about PRIDE and a living example of what makes Clemson such a special place for all of us. The electric atmosphere that you created was unprecedented, and for our players, it is a memory that will last a lifetime. The purpose of this letter is to say “THANK YOU!”

The game played out in dramatic fashion, with your Lady Tigers pulling out a victory in the overtime format of “sudden death.” Freshmen Kelly Schneider, who hails from Mauldin, SC and has dreamed all her life of playing for Clemson, scored the winning goal. It doesn’t get much better than that. Although throughout the game we were able to display consistently what a talented and exciting team we have, we struggled to find the back of the net. Going into overtime, both teams were exhausted, but with such a large and supportive crowd on hand, our players were able to find that extra push that was needed to beat the Gamecocks! So I am giving you an assist on the winning goal!

It is about PRIDE, and the “One Clemson” concept is in full effect and was on display that night. As President Barker has said repeatedly, “a united Clemson is unstoppable,” and we are happy to have proved him right on August 29th! We hope to see you at some of our future games at Historic Riggs Field and once again from the student-athlete’s and staff of the Lady Tiger Soccer Team we want to say “THANK YOU!”
