7th Grade Boys Soccer Wins the ROB Tournament
The 7th grade boys soccer team has been unblemished so far this season, starting 11-0 after recently winning their 2nd consecutive ROB Soccer Tournament. The team played their opening round game on Thursday against St. Johns, winning 6-1. That win put them in the semifinal against Kinkaid. The boys were tested in the semi, but showed great determination and teamwork en route to a 3-1 victory. That win secured a spot in the Championship game against St. Francis. The Championship was a lopsided affair, with our boys coming out on top, 10-1. The boys dominated throughout the tournament, which has been the story all season! Coach Apande praised his team by saying, “The boys work incredibly hard at practice, have fun playing together, and the enjoy each other’s success on the field. It is a fun group to coach.”
Great job and Go Vikings!
