This athletic trip to England matters because it allows myself and my team to experience the beautiful game of soccer in the birthplace of the sport, all while preparing for our upcoming Fall season and learning about the culture of England.

My name is Sarah Burns and I am currently a junior on the PLU Women's Soccer team. I have had the privilege of playing with inspiring teammates and coaches, all while competing at a very high level. I learned about the England campaign the summer before I began at PLU. I saw how close it brought the upperclassmen and made them not only better athletes, but also better people. You truly bond with other people when you travel abroad. I believe that trip has carried over for the past three years on this team and made it one of the reasons we are all so close. I want to do the same this year, with a new group of teammates, some of which who have never traveled outside of the country. The campaign will allow us to scrimmage international opponents earlier in the year, which will make us more prepared for our upcoming season. It will also allow us to see the culture and history that England has to offer such as  the London Eye, Big Ben, Oxford, and the Manchester United Stadium. I couldn't think of a better group of people to go on this journey with. Go Lutes!
