BANNER ELK, N.C. --- The Lees-McRae College
men's soccer program is pleased to announce the details for its
alumni game, slated for April 16, 2011, as well as a signing day
for incoming freshmen earlier that afternoon.
The alumni game is a great opportunity for former Bobcats to
meet new and current players, and enjoy a friendly match along with
good food and drink afterwards. Post-game dinner and festivities
will take place at the Banner Elk Café located minutes from
the pitch. Prior to kickoff, head coach Matt Thompson and his staff
will officially welcome the program's next freshman class into the
Bobcat family with a special signing day ceremony.
Lees-McRae enjoyed a tremendous season this past fall,
concluding the campaign with a 13-5-3 record and advanced to its
fourth straight NCAA Tournament appearance after capturing the
program's fourth consecutive Conference Carolinas regular season
title. The Bobcats are expected to return 16 lettermen for their
Conference Carolinas Tournament Championship squad, including
all-Conference Carolinas First Team selections David Palmer
(Gateshead, England), Luke Perry (Cheshire, England), and Luke
Duffy (Wakefield, England).
