On Saturday, October 23, Hill soccer alumni were invited back to campus for the second annual alumni soccer match. Below is a recap of the event written by Chris Drowne '89, head coach of the boys' varsity soccer team.
It was a great day for Hill soccer as the current varsity side welcomed a dozen alumni from various classes for the second annual alumni soccer match. Coach Emeritus JB Bensinger and his wife, Sandy, deployed a veteran line-up to say the least. Captained by Matt Adukaitis '95, the alumnni also put out Carter Rufe '08 and Bill Robertson '92 in goal, behind field players Nate Yinger '05, Kent Davis '79, Billy Hairston '02, Alex Fuller-Young '02, Will Harvard '01, Sandy Leighton '00, Sean Berry '10, and Mark Robinson '01.
The current varsity squad jumped out 2-0 on goals from Sean Brown '12 off a rebounded Ben Wong '12 shot and Wyatt Fabian '14 off a throw in from Nick Cornwell '11. Alumni keepers Rufe and Robertson combined for 16 saves on the afternoon.
Perfect weather, quality soccer, renewed friendships and a successful event to build on for future years. Many thanks to those alumni who returned and played so passionately.
