“It almost felt like everyone had won the world cup, in that way”: U.S. Women’s Soccer Stars Speak on Success at Arlington Theater

The Daily Nexus covers Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe’s visit to Santa Barbara which included a soccer clinic for over 200 girls and their discussion at the Arlington Theatre.

“Rapinoe joked about her experiences getting ‘walloped’ as a high school player who was ‘never on a winning team.’ But she admitted that the experience of losing led to growth, stating how ‘even at this level, we’ve had some really tough losses in our career and you can’t let that define you.’”
