Soccer Hosts Alumni Weekend
CINCINNATI, Ohio — The University of Cincinnati soccer teams welcome their alumni back to campus this weekend to face the current Bearcats at Meyers Field.
The action on Saturday, April 12 starts at Noon as the current UC women’s team faces its graduated counterparts. At 1 p.m. two teams of alumni will square off and at 2 p.m. the men’s team faces its alumni.
“This is the 15th year or so we’ve been doing this,” said women’s head coach Meridy Glenn. “It’s always fun, especially for the alums.”
New to the alumni team this year will be members of the 2002 squad Amy Simonson, Heather Herweh, Tianna Oliver, Kelly Rigsbee and Jill Firman.
“We always look forward to having the alums back,” men’s coach Hylton Dayes said. “Last year was a very entertaining match, so our guys are really excited. We hope it’s a lot of fun for everyone.”
Both teams enjoyed excellent seasons last year, as the women won their second-straight Conference USA Tournament championship, while the men reached the tournament championship game for the first time.
