FSU Soccer Receives Athletic Director’s Cup For Community Service

April 17, 2000

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The women’s soccer program is extremely proud of receiving the Athletic
Director’s Cup for Service at the 2000 Golden Nole Banquet. The ladies
have put in a tremendous amount of time and energy into community service
this past year. Last year at the Golden Nole banquet, the women’s soccer
team had only 1 hour total of community service for the entire team. The
team has made a concerted effort this past year to improve. This year, the
team totaled approximately 719 hours of service, 34.24 hours per player,
compared to only one hour in the 1998-99 year.

“I am very proud of our young ladies and their commitment to
community service this year,” Head Coach Patrick Baker said. “To go from 1
hr. as a team in 98-99 to 719 hours this year is impressive. We have tried
to reach out to the community and help in a number of different areas. The
team is continually giving of themselves which means a lot. We have raised
the bar in regards to helping people locally, and that will only continue in
years to come.”

One specific member of the women’s soccer team has really made a
significant impact in the area of community service. Sophomore Christy
Peacock, the Golden Nole representative for the soccer team, was one of six
student-athletes to
receive an ACC Top Six Award for Service. Christy has been instrumental in
her team’s community service efforts. She has spent over 30 hours tutoring
local children in various academic areas. In addition, she participated in
Habitat for Humanity, the Downtown/Sprint Volunteers, the Elks Lodge, Youth
Day, the Recreational Soccer Jamboree, and she has spent considerable time
assisting a local paraplegic. Christy was additionally named the Seminole
Spirit February Volunteer of the Month for all of her efforts.
