BENTON TOWNSHIP, MI – The first ever regular season men’s and women’s games of Lake Michigan College intercollegiate soccer will take place this Saturday, August 24, versus Owens Community College. Both games will be played at the soccer field west of the student parking lot on the College’s Napier Avenue Campus. The men’s game begins at 1 p.m., and the women’s game begins at 3 p.m.

Lake Michigan College students and the community are invited to attend the games and festivities. Admission is free.

There will be a brief pre-match ceremony during which members of the LMC Board of Trustees along with LMC Vice President of Student Services Dr. Clint Gabbard will do a ceremonial first kick. Between games, there will be drawings for scholarships, bookstore gift certificates, LMC Red Hawk athletic wear, and other prizes. Rocky the Red Hawk, the College’s mascot, will also be on hand.

Co-Head Coaches Jeremy Woolery and Jason Woolery have assembled two teams of student athletes to compete in NJCAA Region XII Division I soccer league. The Red Hawks will follow a split season, running from August through mid-November with play resuming in early February for two scrimmages in the spring. Annually, the soccer team will compete in 22 games and scrimmages against nine other community colleges in the Michigan-Indiana-Ohio region, as well as against junior varsity teams fielded by four-year colleges.
