Seen this past Sunday at the CADES Putt Putt event, was crackerjack Phillies pitching scout, the Phanatic. The Phanatic is a big supporter of CADES, and used the opportunity to seek out a strong left handed middle reliever for the 2018 Phillies. Rumor has it the Phillies are taking a close look at SRA board member Gary Prugh to fill the role.
SRA congratulates former Town Soccer “red team” standout, Mason Toye, for being selected 7th overall in the 2018 Major League Soccer draft, by the Minnesota United. Former SRA Coach extraodinaire Mike Carey seems to remember Mason slide tackling at age 6. It has not been confirmed, but rumor has it Mason credits Town Soccer for all his success. After his time in Swarthmore, Mason moved to North Jersey, then onto Indiana University where he earned all Big-10 honors. Well done Mason! You can learn more about the MLS draft here, and you can see Mason in person when the United visit Talen stadium to meet the Philadelphia Union on Saturday, October 6th.

While most of the top contenders were taking it easy in a “gentleman’s start”, Charlie Dawes jumped to an early lead and held on, winning the coveted “Fasted Person in Swarthmore” title for 2017. Rob Fairbanks, the 2016 title holder has realized that he’ll have to train hard to reclaim the top position in 2018, and looks forward to a rematch. Claims that the winner was aided by a close family member at the starting line are under investigation.
