“It was really cold outside but it was super fun to watch the guys play, they won and worked hard for it,” Marissa Jimenez ‘20 said.

The boys sold tickets to the four food truck for ten dollars that could be used during the game and would help go towards the program. However due to the cold and snow only one food truck, out of the four promised showed up.  

“Even though it was cold, I still enjoyed playing with our team and seeing how we play as a unit,” Jv player Dillon Martinez ‘20 said.

The level three team played on the grass field and jv played on the turf field from 11 a.m to 12 p.m, while varsity played 12 p.m to 1 p.m on the turf. All three teams beat Cherokee Trail, jv 5-0 and varsity 6-2 .
