San Tan Holiday Classic

If you're local & involved w/club soccer, you most likely heard of this tournament. Well, I'm here to tell you that last wkend, our '99 girls' team took FIRST PLACE! Woot! woot! First tournament for them this season. We are a brand new soccer Academy, as well. These hardworking, committed, leave it on the field playing girls put AAYS on the map! You go girls! We are so proud of them! Here's the post that's on our web site:

99 Girls win 1st Place in San Tan Holiday Classic

Our very own Academy ’99 girls team entered their very first tournament this weekend. Friday night, they tied 0-0. Saturday tied 1-1. Sunday morning Semi-Finals: won 2-0 and this afternoon in the Championship round… took First Place after a tie game (0-0) then Penalty Kicks. They took it in the fourth round! Way to go girls!! Our team was made up of six ‘99s, five ‘00s and two ‘01s.

Our first season, first tournament for the ’99 team & some of these girls’ first time playing soccer? I must say, we had big hopes for these girls and through training and commitment from each & every player… they truly deserved it! Awesome teamwork girls! Look forward to entering more tournaments ladies!

Is this the BEST ever!? I was so happy & proud of Antonia. The girls deserved this win & so needed this. Winning this proves to them that they are beyond capable, as a team, to win & take first place! They pulled together, with 2 subs on Saturday, 1 sub on Sunday & pulled it off. They were exhausted as the other teams subbed in 5 girls at a time... our girls had the skills! That's what it comes down to. If they didn't take first, all us parents still would of been proud bcuz we knew they played their hardest. =)
