Women’s national team captain Boitumelo ‘Queen’ Rabale, who has been studying in the United States at Lewis and Clark Community College, says now is not the time to relax and urged Basotho to stay vigilant and obey rules.

Boitumelo, a sophomore from Lesotho has been named the National Junior College Womens’ Soccer Player of the Year by United Soccer Coaches. She led all of NJCAA in scoring with 57 goals and 33 assists and helped the Trailblazers to a third-place finish at the NJCAA Division National Tournament last November in Melbourne, Florida.

“I urge everyone to assist and do their part as we face this global pandemic,” she said. “All of you play an important role in stopping the spread of this virus.

“What you do matters, not just to older and medically vulnerable people, but to everyone who could potentially catch this virus.

“I encourage you all to stay home, stay healthy, and practice good hygiene and social distancing. Be kind enough to save yourself and everyone,” Boitumelo told COSAFA.
