Quaker Cup slated for July 13

July 3, 2013


Sixteen boys high school soccer teams from around the state will converge on the Wilmington College campus July 13 to participate in the fifth annual Quaker Cup.

“This is a great opportunity to bring in competitive high school soccer programs, have them experience the outstanding soccer facilities at Wilmington College and also a great time to watch some of the top players in the region,” said Wilmington College men’s soccer coach Bud Lewis.

The 2013 Quaker Cup will feature teams from Monroe, Northmont (two teams), West Muskingum, Hilliard Davidson, Turpin, Lakeview, Big Walnut (two teams), Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary, Jonathan Alder, Marysville, Ft. Jennings, Maysville, Hamilton Local and Madison.

Admission fee for the day’s events is $1 for adults and school-age children. The event is co-sponsored by the Wilmington Kiwanis Club.

Games will begin at 8 a.m., with action to take place on Charlie Gilhart Field, Williams Stadium and the lower field adjacent to Gilhart Field.

“The Quaker Cup is a relatively new tradition that we are very proud of,” Lewis said. “It has quickly gained a good reputation around the state. We are confident that this year’s event will further that reputation.”
