Coach Jerry Ruiz had the following to say, “I was very proud of what the girls accomplished this weekend. We have been working on switching the ball at practice and they really applied what they learned at practice to the games we played this weekend. We really worked like a cohesive unit and it was fun to see the girls really connect with each other on the field. I have high expectations for this team for the upcoming Presidio season.”Learn more by visiting http://www.nadosoccer.com/gu9-labor-day-champs/Featured Players:
