KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- On Saturday, several Tennessee soccer players lent a helping hand with Knoxville Habitat for Humanity in the construction of a local house.
Always looking for ways to give back to the community that supports them, the Volunteers teamed up with the Knoxville chapter of Habitat for Humanity for some hands-on contribution. The UT soccer players took part in various parts of the construction process such as operating saws and putting up siding.
Senior Allie Sirna, juniors Suzanne Capocaccia, Susan Ferguson and Gabby Santorio, sophomores Michele Christy, Madison Del Duca, Eleanor Gabriel and Amy Neal and freshmen Gracie DeGooyer, Colleen Gawkins, Josie Jennings, Ashley Jolly, Olivia Knox and Amanda McClanahan all took part in the action on Saturday.
