Pete's Log: ayso national championship

Entry #1072, (Travel)
(posted when I was 23 years old.)

So, as previously stated, Ashley Sisson's soccer team, the Rio Vista Elite, won the far west regional championship in the u14 age group. So they went to the nationals, which this year were in Indianapolis. So yesterday I drove down there to watch a few games. When I got there I was informed that the Elite had tied their first game against Kansas City. There were four teams total in the age group, they all play each other, and the top two teams advance to the championship game. The game I caught Thursday was against a team from Georgia. The Elite won 2-0. Friday morning they played against a Virginia team. They needed a win or a tie to advance to the championship game. Unfortunately, they were defeated 4-0. They still had a chance to advance if the Georgia team beat the Kansas City team, but fate would not have it, Kansas City won. But though they didn't make the championship game, it's pretty cool they made it as far as they did. It was fun to watch them play, and I got to see a bunch of family while in Indy.

On the drive to Indianapolis, I picked up a bad sunburn on my upper left arm. Silly me.
