PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WMBB)– The Arnold girls soccer team held its annual alumni game on Saturday at Pete Edwards Field. The game is a fundraiser for the Megan Pettis Memorial Scholarship.
Pettis was killed in a Panama City shooting in 2013. All money raised from the event will go toward the scholarship that’s awarded in her honor. Click here for a link to the scholarship application.
“It’s wonderful, parents and boosters and the girls some of whom knew her, it’s something that they want to do also I think, and it’s great fun too… we greatly appreciate everyone’s participation,” Megan Pettis’s stepfather Erik Cobb said.
Although the game was just a fun way to raise support for the scholarship, the alumni won 4-3 after penalty kicks.
