So yesterday, the beautiful Saturday that it was, I spent the day on the soccer field enjoying the Alumni game activities! Generally, during almost every sports teams’ off season, there is an Alumni game. It is great event, because all the former players get to reunite and challenge the current players. Both mens’ and womens’ soccer had their games, and mens’ soccer also had their spring scrimmage, which they won!
Since I am a senior and technically an alum to the soccer program, I was put on the alumni team! While I missed playing with the current players, it was a blast to play with a bunch of my former teammates. A majority of the team was with women I played with in the past, including three who were seniors when I was a freshmen! Unfortunately, the alumni team lost, but it was a great time
After the game, we had a tailgate with so much delicious food. It gave us a lot of time to catch up and see what everyone was up to post-graduation. They actually even gave me some great advice about life after college, so we had some great conversations! While we ate, we were able to watch the men play and cheer them on.
It was a great day, spent with great people! I am so glad that sports’ teams have alumni games and I look forward to attending many more to come.
