Billikens Face Indiana Saturday in Spring Opener
ST. LOUIS - The Saint Louis men’s soccer team kicks off their 2012 spring slate
with an exhibition match against Indiana University Saturday, March 24, at 6 p.m. at
Glenwood High School Soccer Stadium in Springfield, Ill.
Tickets to watch the Billikens and Hoosiers square off are $5 for adults and $3 for
kids, grades K-12.
All proceeds from the event benefit Kailey’s Krew, a nonprofit organization founded
by family and friends in memory of Kailey Wilmarth. Kailey is the sister of former
Indiana soccer player Neil Wilmarth. In September of 2010, Wilmarth, then a
seventh grader at Glenwood Middle School, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic
leukemia. She lost her battle with the disease in May 2011.
The mission of Kailey's Krew is to provide financial assistance for basic needs to
families of children in the Midwest who have serious health challenges. For more
information on Kailey's Krew, or to make a donation contact Neil Wilmarth at
Saturday’s game serves as the first of five exhibition contests for the Bills. The
matches will provide an early look at the 2012 team and more game experience for
a young Saint Louis squad. A trio of freshman in Raymond Lee, Kingsley Bryce and
William Hidalgo will lead the charge for the Billikens.
SLU will host a trio of April tilts against Creighton, Washington (Mo.) and Bradley
at Robert R. Hermann Stadium. The Billikens also make a trip to Butler to round out
their spring training tour.
