The 4th annual Preston Hirten Memorial Weekend begins Thursday night, July 4th, and ends Sunday, July 7th. The holiday weekend should attract an even bigger crowd than usual to honor the memory of the former Staples star.
Preston helped the Wreckers to the FCIAC championship and state finals in 2006. He died in 2009, on the soccer field at the University of Mary Washington.
The weekend includes social gatherings at private homes, beaches and bars, and a 7-v-7 round-robin tournament at Wakeman (Saturday, July 6, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.).
Players include Preston’s teammates from Staples, Mary Washington and Beachside, plus current high school players.
After the tournament, everyone is invited to a cookout at Compo Beach.
