Both men’s and women’s Twin-State soccer teams that are scheduled to play New Hampshire in July were named recently. Because of the pandemic, the schools did not hold tryouts but, instead, relied on last fall’s performance as well as needs for positions in order to select members for the 24-player roster. This year’s Twin-State showing should be the 46th cup. However, last year’s game was cancelled because of concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.

This year’s women’s roster includes CVU’s Jess Klein, Josie Pecor and Olivia Zubarik as well as Rice’s Emma Blanck from Williston.

The men’s team includes Henry Bijur and Ben Sampson from CVU.
