WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, N.C.— After the Blue Devil women’s soccer team finished the fifth day of training, GoDuke.com caught up with Duke head coach Robbie Church and senior defender Erin Koballa to get an update on preseason action.
Duke traveled to Wrightsville Beach, N.C., on Saturday and has been training two times a day. The trip to the beach serves as an excellent team-bonding exercise and brings home Koballa, who is from the area. The team stays in Koballa’s house as well as rents another house across the street. Tuesday was scheduled to be a much-needed off day for the Blue Devils. They were going to enjoy some time on the beach and relax.
On Wednesday, the team will train two times before traveling to Columbia, S.C., before playing an exhibition contest at South Carolina on Thursday.
