HARROGATE, TN -- The 2012 LMU Brazil Trip is underway, as the Lincoln Memorial University men's and women's soccer teams embarked for Sao Paulo, Brazil Monday morning.
The Railsplitters and Lady Railsplitters will be implementing the trip as a portion of their preseason training with practices and scrimmages scheduled throughout their one week stay.
During their stead in Brazil, several players and members of the staff will chime in regarding the trip, reporting their experiences, feelings and observations. Stay tuned to www.LMURailsplitters.com for updates on the Railsplitters and Lady Railsplitters abroad.
A few words from freshman midfielder Lauren Dusold (Loveland, OH):
"Today we woke up and got to milk the cows for our first time ever! We also had the opportunity to scrimmage a local Brazilian team and, although they were talented, we came out with a win, 1-0. All of the teams we have met here have been so welcoming and have had such great sportsmanship! Not only that, but we are growing as a team and becoming more confident with ourselves and our teammates. All of the experiences we are having in Brazil are really bonding our team. Tonight we went to a meat restaurant and got to try all these different kinds of meats that we have never tried before. I tried chicken hearts and blood sausage."
