DURHAM — The Powerade State Games High School Soccer Showcase will take place June 24-25 at the UNC Greensboro Soccer Stadium, and as usual, Mount Airy head soccer coach Will Hurley will be a part of it.
Some of the best boys and girls soccer players in the state will tryout to represent their region at the High School Soccer Showcase. The Showcase features six boys teams and four girls teams comprised of rising sophomores, juniors and seniors. Hurley will reprise his role as the Midwest Region’s all-star team, in which role he led the team to a bronze medal last fall. Although rosters for the event won’t be known for a while yet, the Granite Bears are typically represented by a few players.
