38 try out for NMU men’s soccer

MARQUETTE – Head coach David Poggi hosted a tryout for the inaugural Northern Michigan University men’s soccer team on Saturday at the Superior Dome.

The tryout featured 38 athletes from Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois and Montana.

The athletes included potential transfers, junior college players, current NMU students and high school seniors. The Northern Michigan Board of Trustees voted in September 2014 to add men’s soccer, men’s swimming and diving, women’s golf and women’s lacrosse to its slate of sports, with men’s swimming and women’s golf having held their inaugural season this fall.
