Baltimore, Md.—Retriever men's soccer will compete on five dates throughout March and April as part of their spring schedule. The highlight of the schedule is the sixth annual "Kicks for Chase" game against Delaware on April 20.
"We are excited about our spring schedule, highlighted once again by the Kicks for Chase game now it its sixth year," head coach Pete Caringi said. "It supports a great cause and allows us to play in front of our fans against a quality opponent."
Kicks for Chase began in 2013 in memory of Chase Bugarin. Chase, son of UMBC soccer standout Bryan Bugarin ('95) and his wife Amy, was born with Down Syndrome and severe complications. In his honor, UMBC began "Kicks for Chase" to raise money for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Retrievers have hosted Georgetown, Maryland, Villanova, George Mason and American in the first five years of this special event.
