Last Call for Lifka
SWEET BRIAR, Va. --- Senior Ali Lifka (Arden, N.C./T.C. Roberson) and the Vixen Soccer team hit the pitch for the season's last home stand this week. On Thursday, October 18 Sweet Briar hosts Roanoke College and on Saturday, October 20, the Vixen side entertains Guilford College.
