Some high school soccer programs like to supplement their preseason scrimmage schedule with Alumni Scrimmages. Both the Wildcats and Lady Cats Soccer Teams have done these in the past and plan to do so again this season. On Saturday (January 2), the Lady Cats and Wildcats JV and Varsity Teams will be taking on former players. For the Lady Cats, they get things started Saturday at Gerald Prim Stadium with their JV players against the alums at 2 p.m. The Lady Cats Varsity versus the former players will be taking place at 3:30 p.m. Later the Wildcats will take the field. Their JV 1 Team will play ex-players at 5:30 p.m. Then the Wildcats Varsity meets the alumni for a 7:15 p.m. game. The games are always fun and it’s interesting to see who may show up. Former Wildcats Soccer Coach Andy Holt, now at Frisco Wakeland, used to refer to some of the older players returning for the special scrimmage as the old dogs. Current Wildcats Coach Alexi Upton played high school soccer at Mesquite Poteet and will tell you about the night Poteet faced the Wildcats in the playoffs. Poteet got the win. That game was the famous brother in law game between Coach Holt and his former assistant Colby Peak. Both coaches married daughters of former Wildcats Football Coach Dwayne McMeans and his wife Kay. They were in a quandary as to who to cheer for so they had special shirts made supporting both teams and their grandchildren. All that to say that Coach Upton recently attended Poteet’s Alumni Scrimmage. A fun day is planned for this Saturday involving the Wildcats and Lady Cats Soccer Teams and their alumni.
