Soccer Recent History

The 1917 catalog mentioned that Mr. Donald Biery introduced soccer into schools
in the Phoenix area. First it was introduced to the upper grades of the training school as
a substitute for football. Students from valley schools played then the Normal School
students began to play informal games. Soccer was popular for both the athletes and
the spectators. Women's soccer was introduced in 1925. Today, women's Soccer is an
intercollegiate sport. Please visit http://thesundevils.fansonly.com/sports/w-soccer for
