Calvin Men's Soccer NCAA III Final Four Notes

By Calvin Sports Information Student Assistant Andrew Knot

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

For the past 30 years, the Calvin menís soccer team has played on the same field against the same opponents.  Not much has changed.  Chris Hughes now coaches the team, but Dr. Marv Zuidema, after whom the field is named, still faithfully paces the sideline during games.  The uniforms may have changed, but the bloodlines that don those uniforms have not.

Both junior Brad Heethuis and freshman Joe Broekhuizen have fathers who played on the Calvin soccer team under then head coach Marv Zuidema.  Even more, Randy Heethuis and Brian Broekhuizen were teammates on the team that advanced further than any team in Calvin history, the 1980 national quarterfinals. 

Until this year, that is.
