Duluth, Minn. Fall Camp began for the St. Scholastica men's soccer team on Saturday and while the weather outside made it feel like fall on Sunday, Head Coach Barry Chastey had a brush with winter.

Chastey answered the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge as members of the Saints squad dumped buckets of water on their coach. A number of Saints coaches have participated in honor of Jim Moore, the husband of head volleyball coach Dana Moore. Jim Moore recently passed away from ALS.

"As an athletic department and obviously, with men's soccer, we are very supportive of it and I just got dumped on by two buckets of ice. It wasn't too fun in this weather, but we'll do anything we can to help (in the fight) against ALS in memory of Jim," says Chastey.

Chastey challenged his wife and two friends from overseas.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was launched by the family of former Boston College baseball player Pete Frates. The challenge raises awareness and funds for charity. The 29-year old Frates was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, in 2012. The movement has taken off around the country recently.
