In spite of a half hour rain shower starting at 5:00 p.m. and the threat of being sucked dry by mosquitos, 67 kids came out and had fun participating in the 4th Annual Tristar Soccer Contest. Competing in Throw In, Dribbling and Goal Speed Kick events was a unique experience for many the kids, especially under the lights on the MFHS Varsity Pitch.
Co-chair Marji Mulder, Greg Mattson, Todd Paulus, Kim Wenzel, Cathy Sharkey, Terry Fitzsimmons, Rick Kohl, Larry Barbera, Bill Hathaway and Lenny Kimmel were enthusiastic and very supportive of all the kids. An “Atta girl” goes to Deb Kimmel who came right over and helped with registration when we were short several volunteers.
The support, equipment and promos we got from MFHS Head Coach Scott Stein and the mentoring by players from his Boys’ Soccer Team was outstanding, we couldn’t do this without them. Kudos to MFHS Softball Head Coach Lou Sanicola for use of the radar gun.
When the parents were notified that the trophies will be presented at the October 3 weekly meeting, most of them were just as excited as the kids! Joining us that morning will be Fred Hostetler, Director of Coaching for the Menomonee Falls Kicker program, who helped get the word out to many of the kids who came that night.
As always, thanks to all those who have volunteered not only this year, but the previous three years, and have helped establish the Tristar Soccer Contest as another successful “Friend of Youth” event.
