Former US national women’s soccer team captain Christie Pearce Rampone will hold a soccer clinic at Humboldt State on April 4, before she serves as the keynote speaker at the university’s annual Celebrity Diner and Sports Auction that evening.
HSU announced details of the annual fundraiser this week, with further details on the clinic to follow.

The clinic is tentatively set for 11 a.m.
