Cape Cod Soccer Officials Announce Scholarship Recipients

Five students to receive $500 each

The Cape Cod Soccer Officials Association is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2019, Richard E. Maxwell, Memorial Scholarship Awards. 

The 2019 awards go to: 

• Charles Xu - Falmouth High School 

• Jennifer Hollis - Cape Cod Tech 

• Emily Boyle - Sturgis East 

• Victoria Roulston - Falmouth High School 

• Emma Ball - Sturgis West 

Each will receive an award of $500.00 upon completion of the first semester of their freshman year. 

Established in 2011 for graduating seniors, the scholarship award is named to honor the memory of our fellow official, Richard E. Maxwell. “Max” spent over fifty years officiating soccer, was a CCSOA member for almost forty years and a teacher on the Cape for over twenty years. His dedication to the sport, fair play and good sportsmanship elevated the game for us all. 

The 2019 award recipients were chosen from a large pool of very qualified applicants. Eligibility was open to any Cape Cod & Islands high school senior actively involved in their school’s 2018 varsity soccer program.

With this year’s recipients, the CCSOA Richard E. Maxwell Memorial Scholarship has been awarded to a total of 23 student athletes from 11 different Cape and Islands schools. 

Funding for the award comes from a generous donation made by the Maxwell family and game fees donated by member officials. With these awards the Cape Cod Soccer Officials Association is proud to continue their support in the development of our youth, both on and off the field. 

Donations for future awards can be made to:
