To Saint Mary’s University women’s soccer coach Neil Cassidy, the student-athletes in his program are more than just collegiate soccer players — they are family. A family whose roots span from coast-to-coast and beyond. From Chula Vista, Calif., to New York City, N.Y., to Copenhagen, Denmark, Cassidy has brought together players from 14 different states and one foreign country to form this year’s “family” — a group that has kicked off the season with wins in four of its first six games. Experiences like those of a student-athlete are an important part of a Saint Mary’s education that help us create a vibrant campus and transformational life at the College.
