Charlie Reiter ’06 Makes Maccabiah Team

Charlie Reiter is headed to Israel.

Charlie ReiterThe former Wrecker midfielder — currently starring at Davidson College — competes next month on the US men’s national soccer team, in the 18th World Maccabiah Games.  Held every 4 years — as the 3rd largest international sporting event in the world — the Maccabiah Games are often called “the Jewish Olympics.”

Each country sends national teams made up of the best Jewish athletes, in a variety of sports.  In 2005 the US beat Mexico to reach the final, but lost the championship match to host Israel.

Charlie was chosen in December for the 20-man squad.  It includes several top Division I college players, including the goalkeeper for NCAA champion University of Maryland, and the center back from runnerup University of North Carolina.

Charlie — who as a U-14 player was part of the national team pool — played in every game during his first 3 seasons at Davidson.  He is one of the team’s top scorers, from his midfield position.
