Fourth Annual Fincke Cup Is A Success
The 4th Annual Fincke Cup soccer match was held on Tuesday, February 19th at Comalander Stadium. The intense double header opened with the girls’ varsity match between Johnson and Reagan high school, in which the Johnson girls defeated the Reagan girls 4-0. In the nightcap, the Reagan boys outmatched the Johnson boys 1-0. With the aggregate score for the night ending with JHS 4 and RHS 1, the Johnson High School Jaguars took home bragging rights and the coveted Fincke Cup trophy.
The Fincke Cup is an annual soccer match played in memory of Ian Fincke who played soccer at Reagan before transferring to Johnson in 2008. A scholarship is awarded every year to a member of each participating team as voted on by their teammates. This year’s scholarship awards were presented to Adriana Garcia and Francisco Garcia of Johnson High School, and Ashley Crabbe and Jacob Buckley of Reagan High School.
Over the past four years Ian’s Foundation has generated over $15,000 in scholarships for graduating seniors from local high schools. Ian’s Foundation was created to advance the safety and welfare of San Antonio’s youth through educational and recreational activities in memory of Ian Fincke.
