Spain wins world cup

Coker College Men's Soccer Coach, Paul Leese, told me at the beginning of the World Cup that Spain was probably his 2010 favorite as he grew up for many years in Spain. It was a bit difficult for him to take that stand since he was born in England and also grew up there. But, it is safe to say he is happy with the Espana victory.

World Cup fever hit some former Coker students, one of whom was also a communication major in addition to being a member of the Coker College soccer team.
