As reported several weeks ago, 11 Virginia Tech student-athletes are or will be participating this summer in Coach for College, a global initiative to promote higher education founded by former Duke tennis player Parker Goyer. The Tech contingent is among 62 ACC student-athletes who have headed or will be heading to Vietnam to teach children basketball, soccer, volleyball and tennis. More importantly, the curriculum also includes health, physics, morality and English.
Those participating for Tech include Christina Patten (lacrosse), Julie Wolfinger (lacrosse), Ryan Rotanz (lacrosse), Colleen Thom (women’s cross country), Jessica Trapeni (women’s cross country), Drew Dillon (women’s cross country), Aunye Boone (women’s track), Devin Cornwall (men’s track), Keith Ricks (men’s track), Morgan Allen (women’s swimming) and Kaleigh Gomes (women’s swimming).
Hokiesports.com has set up a blog that will be updated periodically by the student-athletes to report on their experiences. The first update was this afternoon and can be found here.
