Men's Soccer Sets Dates For 2011 Alumni Soccer Weekend
June 22, 2011
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The Memphis men's soccer team will host their annual Alumni Soccer Weekend Friday, Aug. 12 through Saturday, Aug. 13. Headlining the event will be the annual kickoff game, which pits the current Memphis men's soccer team versus former U of M players.
In last year’s contest, the 2010-11 Tiger soccer team topped the Alumni team 3-0. Two goals came from redshirt sophomore Mark Sherrod, while then-freshman Gordy Gurson added the final score of the contest.
In addition to the weekend’s annual scrimmage, the Tigers are slated to host an alumni training session (Friday, Aug. 12 at 7:00 p.m. on the Park Avenue Campus) and an alumni and family luncheon (Saturday, Aug. 13 at noon in the University Center ballroom).
The weekend will serve as a tune-up for Memphis, which will begin their regular season on Aug. 28 versus in-state foe Lipscomb. The season opening contest is slated for 7:00 p.m. at Mike Rose Soccer Complex.
Any Tiger alumni wishing to participate in the Alumni Soccer Weekend should RSVP with assistant coach Nick Glaser by July 22, 2011, at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at 901-678-5949.
