Third Annual Latinx Heritage Night Kicks Off Tonight

Loras Men’s and Women’s Soccer will take the field tonight for the third annual Latinx Heritage Night in the Rock Bowl beginning at 6 p.m.

Presented by the Loras chapter of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) and the Loras Soccer Programs, Latinx Heritage Night celebrates the different Latinx heritages that make up a growing part of the Loras student population and the common thread of being a Duhawk.

Unlike previous years, both teams will play intrasquad scrimmages with the women kicking off at 6 p.m. and the men following at 8 p.m.
