AD 2017: Dave Allison Memorial Soccer Game

The night before Alumni Day, faculty, students and parents gathered at the annual Dave Allison Memorial Soccer Game to honor and remember coach Dave Allison and to cheer on the Girls’ Varsity Soccer Team.

Betsy Fenzel ’97 paid tribute to Mr. A and commented “When you think about all the women and children at Hackley that Mr. A inspired, allowing us to bring the principles of teamwork, hard work and dedication into the world, his legacy is tremendous.” Betsy ended with “and as Mr. A would say -- what’s the word?” And the team joined in with a resounding ANIMAL. Mr. A would have proud.

The qualities Mr. A encouraged in his athletes were Honesty, Courage, Perseverance, Sportsmanship, and Strength -- qualities we strive to nurture on the Hilltop every day.
