NCAA Men’s Soccer College Cup bound Panthers enjoy send off

After putting in the work in training each morning on their home turf Monday through Wednesday in preparing for its NCAA Men’s Soccer College Cup match vs Indiana on Friday night in Cary, NC, Pitt men’s soccer team packed its bags and headed to North Carolina on Wednesday afternoon.

The Panthers weren’t allowed to leave Pittsburgh though without a big sendoff from a packed crowd that included various University officials, before boarding its bus outside of the Peterson Sports Complex.

Later in the day, the Panthers arrived in North Carolina.

In addition to getting a nice send off on campus, the Panthers have been receiving additional media attention, including interviews with various media outlets.

Team captain Jackson Walti was on 93.7 The Fan on Wednesday night with Josh Rowntree.
