soccer team gets well wishes, signs autographs before state
The Hilton Cadet soccer team received the royal
treatment as they visited every Hilton school the day before
heading to the state tournament in Middletown on Nov. 13 to
compete in the semifinals vs. Walt Whitman on Nov. 14.
Students around the district cheered them on and the
athletes took the time to sign autographs and even gave a
demonstration of their amazing soccer skills to the students
at Quest Elementary School.
The last time the Hilton team went to states was 28
years ago. This year's team was headed by first-time coach
Michael Ellicott. While the team ended up losing to Walt
Whitman 7-3, the community rallied around the team showing
them support and encouragement throughout the season.
