Russellville High School ladies soccer team members participate in annual Night to Shine

Outside of working together playing soccer, RHS girls soccer team members participated in the annual Night to Shine event, held Feb. 9 at the Marriott in Florence.

Their coach, Delany Roberts, explained they signed up to be buddies “for the honored attendees, people of our community with exceptionalities at various ages.”

“They had a blast,” Roberts added. “It was really cool to see them step out of their comfort zones and be a part of something that’s bigger than them, and I just can’t help but brag. I really am proud of them.”

Roberts said the event is a prom night with face painting and karaoke and other activities, and, as buddies, the girls help ensure their attendees “have the blast they deserve to have,” adding the girls were “complete naturals.”

“I told them to just open their hearts and be a part of the experience,” Roberts added, “and they definitely immersed themselves in it.”

Tenth grader Lilly Figueroa said she hopes to participate again next year.

“I had an amazing night,” Figueroa explained. “It was a wonderful experience. I met some amazing people there.”
