Wofford alumni soccer game

Reunited to win

Soccer alumni stay connected after graduation

Over Labor Day weekend a group of Wofford graduates reunited on the field to participate in the Beer City Cup, an adult soccer tournament in Asheville, N.C., that claims to be the largest adult soccer event in the country. This year teams came from as far away as London, England. The Terriers, who played for Coach Ralph Polson, chose the name the T-Puppies. The group has remained close since graduation. They still enjoy playing soccer together and continue to represent Wofford well. Oh yeah, and they won!
