GREENVILLE – The Green Wave boys and girls soccer programs will host the annual Greenville Senior High School alumni soccer games on the Harmon Field at Miami Valley North Hospital Stadium turf, Saturday, August 1.
The annual event promises to be an entertaining evening of soccer while providing a first look at the roster of this year’s teams, the future stars and some of the past.
The evening will start with the Green Wave girls taking the field to face the alumni at 5 p.m. Following the girl’s matchup, youth from the Darke County Soccer Association will take the field for a glimpse of who to watch for in the next few years on the high school stage.
Finishing off the evening, the Green Wave boys will step onto the pitch against the men’s alumni squad with a 7:30 p.m. start time.
The Green Wave Girls will be led by first year Head Coach Dave Ernst, previously the GHS boys Assistant varsity coach. Ernst will be assisted by Steve Shepard and Alex Hutt.
“The team is very excited for this opportunity to showcase the hard work and determination they have put in over the past 2 months,” said Coach Ernst. “They want to show the Alumni and the fans that they are ready to represent the Green Wave proudly. I believe the Alumni and the fans will be surprised and proud of the team we can put onto Harmon Field.”
The Greenville boys team will once again be led by fifth year head coach, Mark Coppess, assisted by Tyler Martin.
“The boys are ready for this year’s match against the Alumni,” stated Coach Coppess. “ Always a fun game with some good clean competition. It is always fun to have some of my players to return and play against current players. A great opportunity to see how we stack up against the Alumni.”
