Grube spent 13 years in the program — the first six heading up the JV team and the last seven with the varsity, a run that included a state championship.

The father of two, Grube’s older daughter will be entering high school this fall and participating in soccer. But with the way scheduling is set up, it would be nearly impossible for him to see his daughter play in a game. When the boys play at home, the girls are on the road, and vice versa.

“I very much care about the program and the players that are in it and it was a difficult decision, but I couldn’t imagine not seeing my daughter play,” said Grube, whose younger daughter is two grades behind her sister and will also likely be involved in high school soccer.
