Weekend Soccer Tournament

Girls Bring Home Second Place

On October 21, TASIS sent the Junior Varsity boys and Varsity girls soccer teams to The Mediterranean Cup for International Schools tournament held in Verona, Italy. This tournament is 8-a-side tournament and has school from throughout Europe attending. The Varsity girls team battled their way to a well-deserved 2nd place! With one goal against the championship team (Rome) and one goal in the 2nd place game against Geneve, Ladina Baechli led TASIS in scoring. Sammy Hercules and Savannah Renaldi scored goals as well. Good goaltending by Ana Elena Marina had 32 saves in five games including five saves in the final match where she helped shut out Geneve 2-0. The Varsity girls will be competing this coming weekend (October 29-30) in the Swiss Group of International Schools (SGIS) soccer tournament held in Locarno. Results for the tournament can be seen here.

The boys division had schools from Italy, France, Morocco, and a number of school in Switzerland. Competition was stiff in the boys division, and the TASIS JV team got in six games in the two-day tournament. This coming weekend TASIS boys will field two teams for the SGIS tournament, so the opportunity for the JV team to compete in the Mediterranean Cup has given them needed game experience.

And, for a bit more soccer practice - a majority of the boy and girls soccer teams are back in Verona this week for Academic Travel to work with AC Milan coaches and to prepare for the SGIS tournament!
