Goooo Team Umbra!

On Saturday, Umbra students dusted off their soccer shoes for maybe the first time in years to play calcio, the national sport of Italy. They brought their Umbra spirit all the way to victory, winning several soccer matches against the home team, the ONAOSI Institute. The gracious hosts provided a beautiful Umbrian backdrop with 2 soccer fields, talented players, and a referee. As luck had it, the weather was perfect and everyone enjoyed soaking up the warm fall afternoon sun. What had nothing to do with luck was the teamwork, infectious energy from the fans, and the spirit of the game. Go Team Umbra!
