PURPLE RAIN 2000
The 2000 Select Team traveled to Nashville to compete in the Nike Invitational Tournamnet. It was a beautiful weekend for soccer and a great end to our season.
Congratulation to the Purple Rain 2000 Select team. The Blues City Blowout was an unforgettable weekend of soccer. The girls played (and won) 2 games in freezing temperatures and snow advancing them in the semi-final rounds. They won in the semi-final round with penalty kicks placing them in the championship game which was held in the Mike Rose Stadium. The girls were thrilled to play in the stadium though they quickly realized the field was much larger than their usual 11 v 11 field size. The coaches and girls were very pleased with their 2nd place metal. The girls played hard all weekend and they certainly will not forget this tournament anytime soon. How often do you get to play spring soccer in the snow!
The Purple Rain 2000 Select team won 1st place in the Memphis Superclubs Tournament. The girls were thrilled to win their first champion medal. This was an exciting win and a big boost in confidence as the team prepared for the State tournament the following weekend. A highlight of the tournament was the finals win over long-time rival TN Rush. The girls would like to thank Coach Tillmans and Coach Daniel for all of their dedication and commitment to the team. All the hard work pays off!
