Each year, the returning varsity players take a pre-season trip. It’s not about soccer; it’s about being together as a team, sharing experiences, having fun, and tightening the bonds that are so important for a successful year.
This year’s destination was the Kennebec River in Maine. With Mike Smith ’08 as chaperone, and James Scott ’03 — a former soccer player and volleyball star — as river guide and outdoor guru, 9 Wreckers spent 4 action-packed days at the fantastic Northern Outdoors center in The Forks (18 miles north of Bingham, as the logging truck drives).
The team rafted Class 4 rapids on the river, did a high ropes adventure course, slept in tents in the woods, built campfires, ate well — and got ready for the exciting season that begins later this month.
