TWO SOCCER RECRUITS PLAY IN
HIGH SCHOOL ALL-STAR GAME
July 28, 2003
Lakeland College Men's Soccer recruits Tyler Opichka (Green Bay) and Trey Summers (Franklin) participated in the 2003 Wisconsin All Star Senior High School game this past weekend at the Bavarian Soccer Complex near Milwaukee.
Opichka started at center midfield for the Blue Team while Summers came off the bench and played a vital role in the Gold team's 4-3 comeback win. With the gold team down 3-2 late in the 2nd half, Summers bent in a corner kick to the near post past the defensive player on the same post and the goalkeeper.
Opichka and Summers were nominated by their high school coaches and were selected for their respective teams out of a pool of over 225 high schools.
Lakeland Head Soccer Coach Marc Colwell was in attendance at the game and was impressed with what he saw from the two incoming freshmen.
"Tyler demonstrated that he can handle playing in the middle of the pitch against some very tough competition," said Colwell.
"Trey showed his versatility by playing both outside midfield and outside back," added the Muskies skipper.
