HOLT, Ala. (WIAT) – Starting this spring, Holt High School will be competing in soccer for the frist time with both a boys and girls team.
“This is a new endeavor for us. The kids are wonderful. They are hardworking kids,” said head coach Michael Yessick. “They do really well in the school, and I’m just excited and tickled to death to be able to do this.”
Starting a program from scratch isn’t easy, so WIAT 42 and Hibbett Sports thought they would help the Ironmen by making them this week’s One Team at a Time.
The team was given $1,000 of free soccer equipment.
Cleats, balls and other practice equipment will go a long way in year one for Holt soccer.
