The Elementary Soccer season ended with the district Jamboree on Friday, October 12. Team 1 came away with one tie and one win. Team 2, although defeated in all three games, had a great experience and played hard. All kids learned a lot and had fun. Thank you to all our volunteers and parents who chose to make this a positive experience for the students involved. Go Raiders!!!
