We survived


That's how I feel about our first year in select soccer. It went from April to February - and during the beginning it was rough going. I used 70-80 hours of vacation to attend tournaments. Some are Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We traveled to Everett, Snohomish, Bellingham, Moses Lake, Oregon, Redmond, Puyallup and Gig Harbor. The kid had many minor injuries and a major - broken wrist during the season. She worked her ass off and went from a medium defensive player to a forward. She has some work to do to dominate that position but she will get there.
We lost our final game - to a team that we have beating before and prob should have beat again.
Try-outs are in a few weeks for the 2008-2009 season.
