This morning, as our Men's Soccer Team was traveling to Mississippi College in Clinton, Mississippi, a neutral site for a make-up game with Christian Brothers University, the rental bus in which they were traveling caught fire on the highway in Collins, Mississippi, approximately two and a half hours from Spring Hill College and thirty minutes from their destination. Everyone on board the bus was able to exit safely, without injuries, and the local fire department quickly extinguished the flames. The team was provided another bus to complete travel to the match and will return to campus later today. There are no reports at this time as to the cause of the fire.
The team is en route to Mississippi College and is expected to arrive shortly. Kickoff has been moved to 3:30 p.m. to accommodate the delay.
