Billy Berger Soccer Alumni Game

Over 30 men’s alumni came out to play in the game this year. The ladies also had nearly 20 come play against this year’s CHS girl’s varsity team. A great time was had by all.

The CHS Billy Berger Soccer Alumni game was held Saturday, August 5, at the CHS Athletic Stadium. A large crowd came in support of the Berger family and the efforts
of the CHS boys soccer team to begin the Billy Berger soccer scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior on the team pursuing a 4 year degree. Adam
Wheeler represented the boys team in a touching tribute to Billy, sharing his many accolades in soccer programs after he graduated CHS, along with stories of his great char-
acter and enormous heart. Donations will continue to be accepted at the high school, with cash or checks made payable to Columbia High School, memo - Berger Scholarship.
