On Labor Day weekend, the first Mary Latremore Memorial Be the Match Chazy Girls Varsity Soccer Classic was held. Chazy, Peru, Plattsburgh and IHC of Watertown competed in a fun, competitive tournament. Congratulations to Peru for winning the Classic.
Be the Match is a bone-marrow registry for millions of people who are waiting for the perfect match. Free bone-marrow kits were offered, and 45 new people joined the registry. Thank you to everyone who registered.
A very special thank you to the Latremore Family and Glenn Latremore for sharing their story of Mary Latremore, who passed away four years ago from a bone-marrow disease. Mary was a big supporter of Chazy School athletics.
Thank you to Curtis Latremore for helping me create this tournament. Thanks to our volunteers and ambassadors of Be the Match, my sister and my mom Denise and Rosemaire Sherman, Kelsey and Lori Latremore and Ann Marie Curle; to our sponsors, Riley Ford, NBT Latremore Agency and Scott Carpenter-Econo Lodge, for your donations that were used for the tournament banner and the long-sleeved T-shirts that each player received; also Jeff Wood-Off Field Sports for your donation of all tournament T-shirts.
See you next year.
Karin Sherman Trombley, Chazy
