BANNER ELK, N.C. --- The Lees-McRae College women's soccer program is pleased to announce the schedule for its alumni weekend, which is slated for April 15-17 and includes an alumni game on Saturday.
Lees-McRae recently capped one of the best seasons in program history, advancing to the semifinal round of the Conference Carolinas Tournament and recording the program's highest win total since the 2000 campaign. Several Bobcats garnered individual recognition for their outstanding performance this fall, including Daktronics NCAA Division II all-Southeast Region Second Team selection MaryBeth Sullivan (Greensboro, N.C.), who led LMC with 14 goals and 37 points in her freshman campaign.
The alumni game, slated for a 1 p.m. start on the LMC practice fields, offers the chance for former Bobcats to take the pitch against the members of the current squad and relive their glory days on the Lees-McRae campus. Alumni are encouraged to register at a cost of $10 per person, which includes a t-shirt and food following the game. The game is slated to coincide with the Conference Carolinas Track & Field Championships that weekend, as well as alumni weekend festivities for the men's soccer program.
Those interested in participating in Alumni Weekend and the Alumni Game should contact LMC women's soccer assistant coach Nick Whiting by March 16. Whiting can be reached either by phone at (828) 898-8927, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
