Ole Miss Soccer’s Haleigh Stackpole Named to SEC Community Service Team

In recognition of his contributions to the Oxford-Lafayette community, senior midfielder Ole Miss Haleigh Stackpole has been named to the SEC Community Service Team, the league office announced Wednesday.

In an ongoing effort to recognize student-athlete achievements beyond the realm of competition, the Southeastern Conference is once again highlighting a panel of athletes for its annual Community Service Team. All league-sponsored sports have had a community service team since 2004.

A member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, Stackpole participated in the Feed the Sip program in the spring of 2021, helping to collect and donate 500 book bags filled with non-perishable food to donate to students at Tunica and Quitman Co. areas, at continuation of the Stronger Together initiative. In total, the food drive raised more than 6,300 food items in fall 2021. Stackpole also volunteered at Ole Miss’s Adopt-a-Basket event, helping to donate more than 90 food baskets to members of the Oxford-Lafayette community. .

Additionally, Stackpole volunteered his time to Reading with the Rebels, reading to local schoolchildren. The SEC support manager also helped with the Awesome Lemonade Stand, a cause started by rebel football player Mac Brown that raised more than $2,000 to benefit those affected by ALS. Stackpole has provided motivation and support for the next generation of players by volunteering with the Oxford Recreational Youth Soccer League.

Stackpole and the Rebels return to the field Thursday as they take on rival Mississippi State for the Magnolia Cup. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. on SEC Network.
