The Varsity Spring Soccer Team won the Championship of the 18th annual Troy Buchanan Tournament held in Wentzville, Mo. The three day ‘road-trip’ provided the players the opportunity to build the team chemistry that was an integral part of the Varsity team this year.

Due to the floods in the St. Louis area, the Tigers played 4 games in 5 days the next afternoon and beat eventual 4 A Champs Eureka. The Tigers played the best game of the season on a hot and muggy spring afternoon with a short bench—(3-subs).
