The Spartans 16U boys team recently returned from a very successful trip to the Pacific Winter Classic Tournament in San Diego.
The trip started with an exhibition game that allowed the team to adapt to the concept of playing in outdoor pools in the dead of winter. Day one of the 12 team tournament was very successful with victories of 13-4 and 14-4.
The competition got stiffer in the semi-finals. With the game tied and a trip to the tournament championship on the line, the Spartans sealed the deal by scoring the game winning goal with just 15 seconds left in the game.
We lost 10-5 in the final but were very proud to bring home the silver medal and some great California memories.
A visit to the beach at Torrey Pines State Park was one of the highlights of the trip. A huge shout-out goes Coach Vladimir and Chaperone Eric for ensuring the boys had a first class experience both in and away from the pool.
