Comets Set To Kick Off Soccer Season August 26

The Greenville Comets boys’ soccer team will hit the practice field Wednesday, August 13 in preparation for their upcoming season.

“We’ve got a lot of boys coming back from last season,” Comets Soccer Coach Mike Young told WGEL. “We had a conference championship and a regional championship that we’re building off of. We’ve got a lot of guys coming out; about 40 players are trying out for the team this year. So we’ve got a lot of enthusiasm and a lot of young, athletic kids that we’re hoping to build on. We’re looking forward to the season.”

The Comets soccer team opens their 2014 season at home against Breese Central on Tuesday, August 26. The game is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at Tom Doll Field.
