Matthew Hogan, who played in the Hurricane soccer program during the Fall 2003 through 2005 seasons, recently shared the following item on Caring Bridge: “Dear Friends who have been following my wife’s story…Natalie went to be with her savior on Tuesday, September 13th after her six year battle with cancer.

Please continue to keep Matthew and family members in your daily prayer upliftings as they grieve this loss and lean heavily on the Lord.
|August 31, 2022. Checking-in with Head Coach Wohlgemuth.|
Head Coach Jeremiah Wohlgemuth’s assessment of how things were going after a little more than a week of official turnouts was, “So far, the squad is looking very solid.”
“We’ve got nine seniors and the bulk of the group [returning] that pushed its way into the State quarterfinals last year,” Coach Wohlgemuth added. The Hurricanes graduated only three seniors from last year’s squad.
MVC opens their season with a non-league road match in Tacoma with Sound Christian Academy on Wednesday, September 7. In last year’s only Bi-District Tournament match, the Hurricanes defeated the Lions, 1-0. Sound Christian, who plays in the District Two’s Sea-Tac League, graduated eight seniors from that team.
Following their opener, the 2022 Hurricanes are currently schedule for a Friday, September 16 non-league, home match at 4:00PM with Orcas Island.
