Congratulations to the 8U Blue All-Star team for defeating a tough West Grove team, 4-2, to capture the 8U Gold Championship at the Rancho Bernardo Grand Slam Summer Jam Tournament. Led by Coach Harvey Torrez, these girls played in seven tournaments this summer and compiled a very impressive 21-10-2 record. They advanced to the championship game in two tournaments (one 1st, one 2nd) and the semifinals in four others, outscoring their opponents 159 to 77. They saved their best for last and finished the season in style! Great job ladies!
