On Oct. 4, the Island Trees High School boys soccer program held its first annual Men's Alumni Day and game. Alumni as far back as 1986 made their way to the soccer complex at Michael F. Stokes Elementary School. The day started with a welcome gathering and the distribution of jerseys. This afforded the players time to reminisce with old coaches, friends, and families that were a vital part of their youth. After some team pictures, it was time to see how many of the roughly 45 former players could still play. The teams were split into two, based on even or odd year of graduation. Current head coach Graham Radcliffe was chosen as the special guest referee. Former club coach, Ray Cuesters, was chosen as an honorary coach. The game ended in a 5-3 victory for the odd years team. After the game, the players and their families remained at the field for a barbecue. There was also a presentation of the first ever Alumni Day MVP, given to Barry Batohie from the class of 1986. The most important presentation was to alumnus, Jeff Esposito, class of 1990. It was with Jeff's vision, planning and dedication that the day was even possible.
