Pitch Perfect Proposal

Updated: October 28, 2015

On Friday, October 23, Colorado School of Mines Men’s Soccer played Ft. Lewis to a draw. While the match on the pitch was pertinent in ultimately determining CSM hosting the RMAC Men’s Soccer Tournament, that’s not the story that came from it for many in attendance or following on social media.

As seen on @MinesAthletics Twitter (by clicking here), captain Joe Haines proposed to his longtime girlfriend, and women’s captain,  Mel Westhoff on the field in front of everyone. She said yes (if she said no, we wouldn’t be featuring THAT moment!). The two now engaged joined Colorado Corner to discuss the monumental event in their lives:

The RMAC Men’s and Women’s Soccer Tournaments will be hosted by Colorado School of Mines November 6-8. The schedule can be seen on www.csmorediggers.com. Congratulations Joe and Mel! Thank you for sharing a bit of the moment with Colorado Corner.
