Alumni game strikes ninth round

(Continued)

WASHINGTON —

A big part of that family demeanor is how the girls’ soccer program has been included and that has added to the excitement of the weekend. Monty Critchlow, who served as the girls’ inaugural coach from 1993-2005 will serve as a referee Saturday.

“Our involvement really started with Kevin Myers,” Critchlow said. “He (Myers) had their side and we had ours, but a lot of the players want to see their classmates, so he carved out a spot for us in the middle of his program ¬ it’s worked out well for us.”

Critchlow said as a former coach it’s great to see all the girls he used to coach, and especially the ones that may have moved further away, to see how they have turned out and matured as adults since their playing days.

“A lot of these kids, if you get outside their class and maybe knowing someone by name, they get a chance to step on the field together,” Critchlow said. “A lot of these girls are physical fitness freaks. They are doing long distance running ¬they are probably in better shape than when they were playing.”

The day will start with the men’s alumni game, followed by the women’s and girls’ alumni game. The night will conclude with the winner of the men’s game matching up against the 2013 WHS boys team. The final game is something of a prideful exercise for the alumni. The alumni have never lost to the boys team, and Quintin Myers made it clear they won¹t go down easily.

“I’ve already heard it from (incoming senior) Austin Ghirardelli that this is going to be the year for the first loss for the alumni,” Quintin Myers said. “They hear all our stories of our highlights, so we just want to remind them of the quality of teams that we’ve had in the past and let them know they have a lot of work to do.”
