On Saturday, July 20, 33 teams participated in the 4th Annual 3x3 soccer tournament in Phillips. As in the past, many teams were either local or from neighboring communities. However, this year the tournament saw participation from far and wide; one team traveled from Germantown, and another came from Marquette, MI, to participate. Nearly 300 participants and fans enjoyed the daylong event.
Tournament Manager, Jeff Jasurda, was impressed with the quality of soccer he saw throughout the day. Not only was the day perfect, with temperatures in the low 70’s, but organizers were also impressed with the camaraderie displayed by competitors.
“Each year the tournament grows by a few more teams,” said Jasurda. “Hopefully, next year we will have nearly 40 teams. Participants ranged in age from seven to 56 years of age.
“We wish to extend our gratitude to our local sponsors, and all of the volunteers who have helped to make this a great fundraiser for youth soccer.”
