The Green Wave boys’ soccer team worked out against some stiff competition last weekend.
Summerville traveled to the midlands to compete in the Lexington High School pre-season tournament. The Green Wave battled a pair of teams to a tie and lost two contests.
“It was a competitive tournament,” Summerville coach Jason Rasner said. “The boys played well and we had a strong showing in spite of not getting good results.”
On Friday night, Summerville faced AC Flora in a scrimmage that ended in a 0-0 tie.
On Saturday afternoon, Summerville played Aiken and lost a close game 0- 1. On Saturday night, the Green Wave went up against SCISA power Cardinal Newman and fought for a 2-2 tie.
On Sunday, the Green Wave met Class AAAA defending state champion Lexington on the pitch and lost 0-2.
