Men's Soccer Alumni Day

Rain and cold temperatures weren’t enough to keep men’s soccer alums from participating in Alumni day!

At 9:30 a.m. more than 25 alums gathered on Wish Field to participate in their annual alumni game. Cold, blistering temperatures didn’t stop these alums from giving their all on the field; in fact, it actually propelled them to play harder. The alums split into even teams and went at it for over an hour. After the game the alums were invited to eat, drink, and fellowship until the start of the DePaul/Syracuse match-up.

Reminiscing; sharing of new happenings; and amazement over the development of the campus since the “old” days, were common topics addressed during this time.

During halftime, all alumni were honored at mid-field by Jean Lenti Posetto, Diretcor of Athletics, and Kathryn Statz, Associate Director of Athletics.

Following the Men’s soccer victory over Syracuse, all alums, players, and parents gathered in the Hall of Fame Foyer to celebrate the seniors and to thank the alumni for their unyielding support of the program.

Thanks to all of the alums who helped make this day so special! It was great seeing each of you; and we look forward to your continued support of the men’s soccer program!
