Cardinal soccer players Mackenzie Wenger ’14 of Davis, Ill., and Hannah Magiera ’16 of Zion have many memories of time on the soccer field. But perhaps their most vivid experiences as student-athletes aren’t from kicking a soccer ball past the goalkeeper, but kicking a football through the uprights.  

The prospect of kicking on their respective high school varsity football teams started as a joke for both Wenger (photo, left) and Magiera (right). Eventually, with a little persistence and supportive coaching staffs, the opportunities were there for the taking.
