The teams came from all across the United States and even across the globe to participate in the USA Schwan’s Soccer tournament in Blaine this past week.

From the opening ceremony on, our girls were ready for the challenge and excited by the opportunity.

“The soccer team played great during the USA Schawn’s Tournament,” said head coach Tim Colleran. “During this tournament our team had the chance to play and meet teams from all over the world.”

The tournament took place Tuesday, July 15 through Friday, July 18 in Blaine.

The Warriors competed against much larger metro schools and held their own.
