The fourth annual 810 Varsity Soccer Showcase kicks off tomorrow with yet another strong lineup.
Four games will be held at St. Thomas Aquinas, starting with two cross-border matchups in Blue Valley North vs Lee's Summit North at 1 pm, followed by defending 5A state champion Blue Valley Southwest vs Lee's Summit West at 3 pm.
A battle of western Johnson County will go at 5 pm, with Class 4A defending champion Bishop Miege facing surging Olathe West (10-1).
The nightcap will feature two Kansas powers in Class 6A title hopeful Dodge City taking on Class 5A behemoth St. Thomas Aquinas. In the 2017 810 Varsity Soccer Showcase, Aquinas knocked off nationally ranked Dodge City.
The inaugural showcase held two sets of games on fields at College Boulevard Athletic Complex, including Rockhurst vs CBC and Olathe East vs St. Thomas Aquinas. The event traditionally has 2-3 eventual state champions playing.
"The 810 Varsity Showcase has become one that area high school coaches like, and has traditionally has strong matchups within the city, and regionally," said Saints head coach Craig Ewing.
