The San Jacinto High School girls’ soccer program will be hosting the return of their much-anticipated alumni game Saturday, Jan. 6, 2024. The game will take place on their home fields for the first time since 2019 and are hoping to pull in as many alumni as possible.

This will also be the last time that long-standing head coach Walter O. Guzman will be the patriarch hosting the event. After 23 years of coaching soccer, Guzman, a retired SSG from the U.S. Army, who has been with the San Jacinto Unified School District for 27 years, will be retiring,

“This is the first time since the pandemic that we have been able to schedule the event, so bring out the family,” says Guzman, who is also the School Services Manager.

The cost of the event, which kicks off at 11 a.m., is free. Coach Guzman can be reached at (915) 234-9124 or at his office at (951) 654-7374 ext: 2975.
