WHS hosts ninth annual alumni game

(Continued)

WASHINGTON —

Dyer’s brother, Mitch Wilkerson, a 1996 graduate, enjoyed his fourth alumni game Saturday. Wilkerson said the sense of community that still exists for former players around Washington is still astonishing.

“It’s unbelievable,” Wilkerson said. “Kevin Myers, and now his son, Quintin, they are just class acts. Once you become a member of Washington soccer, you are a member for life. They treat you right. You’re family and you know they’re always going to be there for you.”

Unfortunately, the inclement weather took away the most anticipated game of the day - the men’s alumni vs. 2013 boys’ soccer team game. The men’s alumni is 8-0 in the game and the members of the alumni have talked plenty about not wanting to ever lose to the current Washington boys team.

“There’s a little pride that goes into it,” Wilkerson said. “When they beat us and we know it’s going to happen eventually, they¹re going to be really good, because there are a lot of quality players coming out of this program.”
