The news is relayed to us via Mr. MacIntyre, VSJ, class of ’68, who adds:
Mac writes: “Mike Bachman ’68 ran into Anson Dorrance ’69 last summer at the Masters Nationals in Bellingham, WA. They both play in the 55+ bracket.
Mike noted about Anson, “He looked pretty fit for an old guy.” One expects the same might be said about Mike himself.
“Funny how a tiny school such as VSJ should prove a hotbed of soccer notables: In addition to the obvious (Anson), there’s Mike who’s still playing at the national level. Brian Lawler is coaching a team in Washington state. Malcolm Lawrence, if I recall correctly, coached a team of 12-and-unders who won a national championship. And Alan Balladur coached an award-winning team in the U.K., if memory serves. I’m probably forgetting some, but that list alone is damned impressive.”
