Hillsborough High School Varsity Soccer Teams 'Team Up' with Local Youth Players

Events honor graduating seniors.

Last week marked several banner games in Hillsborough High School varsity soccer. 

On Tuesday, October 16, the Hillsborough High School Girls Varsity “Lady Raiders” had their Senior night, honoring graduating seniors, and Kick Out Cancer night, a fundraiser for the Progin family.  Ian Progin was diagnosed with Stage 4 Glioblastoma. A lifelong resident of Hillsborough, a guidance counselor and head boy's basketball coach at HHS, Rutgers Graduate and former RU basketball player. 

Players from the Hillsborough Soccer Club girls teams Pumas, Cheetahs and Heat Wave attended to support their mentors. Our Hillsborough Soccer Club players joined the High School players to make a tunnel for the seniors to run through at the beginning of the game.  Then they were ball runners for the game, chasing balls out of bounds and passing them back to the players.  The Lady Raiders, coached by LeeAnn Best, won the contest over Franklin Twp., 2-0.

Two nights later, on Thursday, October 18, the boys varsity team celebrated their senior night.  This time, it was members of the boys Hillsborough Soccer Club teams Explosion and Barcelona who took part, first by accompanying the starting lineup to the center of the field for the playing of the National Anthem and then serving as ball boys to keep the action of the game going.  Coach Eric Puma’s Hillsborough boys team fought their opponent, Hunterdon Central, to a 1-1 tie.

These events were a great opportunities for the younger players to aspire to be like the High School players and continue playing soccer, provided an excellent mentoring opportunity for the High School players, and helped to bring our soccer community together.

I think we're going to plump for http://www.outletcoachstoday.com the bigger one. It won't be the http://www.coachoutletod.com easiest to tow behind our push-bikes, http://www.coachs-outletcar.com particularly over Berlin's cobbles, but it will make http://www.coachoutletdp.com for swifter trips to interviews, http://www.coachoutletwo.com and it will save money for the licence-payer. http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com Berlin makes getting around http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net on two wheels a pleasure.I have cycled in London http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org but gave it up after too-many rants at a http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net white van. But in Berlin, it is a joy. Firstly, the city is http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com pretty flat, and secondly, there are endless cycle http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com tracks. Thirdly, everybody has a bike - so car-drivers are http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com probably also cyclists in their other lives and so keep http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org their eyes wide open.The test of whether cycling has really taken off in a city http://www.coachoutletrf.com is who does it. In New York, it is urban warriors, young men usually, who zip http://www.coachfactoryonlinebp.com aggressively between lanes.In London, it's a bit of that, but also, I suspect, http://www.coachoutletuser.net eco-zealots who are asserting their credentials - though the Boris bike scheme may be taking it more mainstream.In Berlin, it is the people.
