The ASC had 19 (!) teams participate in the Natick Tournament this past weekend. In addition to being honored with not one, but two Sportsmanship Awards, 6 Arlington teams competed in the finals.
The boys grade 8 Aces (BAYS Division 1A) won the tournament in the Boys U14 Alpha group, with the girls grade 5 Wolverines (BAYS Division 3E)winning the Girls U11 Gamma group. Congratulations to all teams on a successful tournament weekend!
Thanks to the efforts of long-time ASC intown coach, Steve McHugh, a town in Zambia recently received a shipment of donated ASC equipment and uniforms. The message from the coordinator on the ground indicated…”the school cancelled classes and it was quite a morning…the soccer games, 3 of them… went on for hours. It turned into a field day for the kids; younger kids were playing games like tag, with sock balls and plastic bag balls. Most of the kids kicked off their shoes and played in socks or barefoot on grassy dirt with stones, etc. The girls played at the level of JV teams – fun to watch!”
