Congratulations to Luke Bernatavitz for being near the top of the goal-scoring table. (See below.)
While the boys were disappointed with not advancing, they made a name for themselves in Region III. They are already looking forward to playing Premier League Central games against teams from Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, starting in August.
A special thanks goes to Coach Eric Bossman for continuing to develop the boys and helping build an outstanding program.
