I want to personally thank all the students for their passion and dedication to practice and preparation to play, especially considering we had a very short window in which to prepare.  Thank you to those who have attended the games and picked up students from practices.  

We are a family, and we look forward to the same support as we begin Soccer!

Student athletes must participate in weekly Covid testing.  For questions about the tournament, please contact Dr. John Iverson at [email protected]
