Bear soccer ready to roar


Austin Tumbarello (in red) and his Mount Airy soccer teammates will begin their defense of the Northwest 1A Conference title in just a little over a month. Here, the sophomore is shown mixing it up with a Central All-Star player in last week’s Bronze Medal Game at the Powerade State Games in Raleigh. Tumbarello, one of the youngest players on the medal-winning Midwest team, scored a goal in the third match of the tournament.

The Midwest team benefited from the unique skillset of another Granite Bear, senior Malcolm Malone. Malone, an all-state discus thrower for the state champion MAHS track team, frequently got the call in the State Games for his ability to throw the ball long, effectively giving throw-ins close to the opposing goal the same threat as a corner kick.
