WVSSAC Soccer Tournament pushed back

Posted:

UPDATE:

A meeting was held today in Beckley at the YMCA Soccer Complex and David Laraba, Co-Director of the State Soccer Tournament, notified the WVSSAC that with the amount of snow on the fields it would be next to impossible to play at their site any time next week. David Laraba said, "in all fairness to the youngster who will be participating in the state tournament they need a venue that will not impact the outcome of the game. It is in the best interest of our sport to move the tournament."

The WVSSAC administrative staff visited two sites in Charleston, Schoenbaum Soccer Stadium and Trace Fork Complex, and has decided to move the Soccer State Championship to these two facilities. The Class AAA tournament will be played at Schoenbaum Soccer Stadium and the AA/A will play at the Trace Fork Complex.

Semi final action will be help on Tuesday November 6th and the finals being held on Wednesday November 7th.

Gary Ray, Executive Director, said, "we hate having to move the tournament from Beckley because of the effort by David Laraba and Tim Carrico, Athletic Director at Woodrow Wilson High School, but we trust their judgment and recommendations".

Shawn Wheeler, Athletic Director at George Washington High School, will direct the Class AAA tournament and Bill Gillespie, Athletic Director at Charleston Catholic High School will direct the Class AA/A. The WVSSAC will work with the Charleston CVB to make necessary arrangements with hotels for our schools, officials and fans to find lodging.

In closing Mr. Ray continued, "we appreciate the cooperation of the two facilities in Charleston for assisting our efforts in finalizing the State Soccer Tournament."
