CINCINNATI -- The Xavier women's soccer team will host its first annual alumni match this Saturday, September 25 at 2 p.m. at the Xavier Soccer Complex. Current and former Musketeers will take the pitch in an exhibition match.

"We are excited to reestablish the Alumni game here at Xavier. There has been such a rich tradition over the past 26 years," said first year head coach and XU alum Woody Sherwood. "The game provides us with an opportunity to connect the current team with the past."

About 25 former Musketeers are expected to attend the match. The current edition of the Musketeer women's soccer team has a strong connection to its past. Coach Sherwood is not the only XU alum on the coaching staff. Former Musketeer and current assistant coach Kerri Heedum was a member of the 1998 A-10 championship team.
