Four Trojans to compete in PostYourT All-Star Soccer Games

It’s going to be cold to play outside Saturday, but that’s exactly what four New Castle High School boys soccer players are planning to do.

Trojans Logan Pate, Scott Loveless, Brayden Ring and Skylor Stevenson will be traveling to Brownsburg Saturday afternoon to compete in the annual PostYourT All-Star Soccer Games honoring all three classes at Bethesda Christian High School.

The New Castle quartet will be on the same East (Red) Team that will play the West at 2 p.m., the first of two boys games held on the day after the girls play their games at 10 a.m. and noon.

At the recent team honors banquet, Ring was named defensive Player of the Year, Loveless received the Coach Greg Crider Legacy Award, and Pate received the Mr. Practice Award. Stevenson, of course, was the placekicker on the football team and had a good fall in both sports.

Joining the four New Castle players on that East team are Chase Beck from Muncie Central, Dante Torres from Centerville, Logan McIntosh from Jennings County, Morgan Sutton, Patrick Wagner, Trent Linville, Jacob Jines, and Jordan Meyer from Jac-Cen-Del, Ethan Schwipps, Talon Gobel, and Evan Miller from Milan, Jaylin Reece from Taylor (Kokomo) and Chase Custer from Rushville.

The Trojan players did not face any of the players on the West team during competition this season.

No local girl players are in either of the first two games on the day, although Delta, Jay County, Yorktown and Muncie Burris are well-represented on the East team in the 10 a.m. girls game, and Shelbyville, Rushville and Wapahani have girls on the East squad in the contest at noon. Wapahani has several players on the East team in the 4 p.m. boys game.

Bethesda Christian High School is located at 7950 N. County Road 650 East (Hendricks County) in Brownsburg. Take I-70 West to Sam Jones Expressway which hooks into I-465 North on the west side of Indianapolis.

Go north on it until I-74 is reached, take 1-74 West to Ind. 267. Go north on Ind. 267 to CR 800 N, turn left and follow it west to CR 650 East, turn left (south) and the school is right there.

Admission to all four games (all-day pass) is $8 for adults, $5 for school kids K-12, and free of charge to those under age 5.
