Alumni soccer game
WEBUTUCK â€” It may have been a long time since youâ€™ve laced up the cleats and run around the Webutuck High School soccer field, but a new alumni soccer match scheduled for this Saturday, Oct. 17, will raise funds for the Webutuck Booster Club and add a bit of nostalgia into the mix.
â€œWe wanted to do something different,â€ said club President Michele Adrian. â€œItâ€™s a way for the alumni to give back and itâ€™s something fun and family-oriented.â€
The game begins at 1 p.m., after the girls varsity and JV teams play Saugerties at 11 a.m.
Many of the alumni participating will be coaches from the areaâ€™s Webutuck Valley Youth Soccer program, giving parents and children a chance to cheer their coaches on.
Admission to the event is free, but a $5 donation from any alumni players is requested. Registration for players will begin at 11:30 a.m. There will be a concession stand set up by the Booster Club as well as a 50/50 raffle. Adrian encouraged families to stop by for the day, enjoy lunch and cheer Warriors of all ages on.
Webutuckâ€™s Booster Club raises money for each seasonâ€™s sports banquet, senior recognition days and scholarships awarded at the end of the year. Last yearâ€™s major project was to purchase new banners for each of the sports teams, which are hung in the gymnasium and display any championship titles a team has earned over the years.
â€œItâ€™s the last home game for the girls teams and we just hope itâ€™s a lot of fun,â€ Adrian added. â€œBring your family, come for lunch and have a good time.â€
