Briarcrest Student Athletes Invited To Play In U.S. Soccer National Championships!
Briarcrest Christian School Girls soccer players, Juniors Taegan Allen and newcomer Kylee Bright just competed in the Under 16 Southeastern Regional Soccer Tournament in Little Rock, Arkansas this past month. Both Allen and Bright play for the 99 Collierville Lady Lobos Rush Soccer Club. Their team finished as runner-up to the three time defending regional champions and national powerhouse, Tophat Soccer Club out of Atlanta, GA.
However, due to the team’s outstanding play in the Southeast Regional Tournament, the 99 Lady Lobos have been invited to participate in the US Youth Soccer National Championships, which will be held in Tulsa, Oklahoma from July 20 – 26, 2015. Only eight U16 girls’ teams were invited to play in the upcoming National Championships.
The 99 Lady Lobos qualified for the National Championships by playing to a draw with the Tennessee State Champions and then defeating the North Carolina State Champions, Arkansas State Champions, Texas State Champions and the Georgia State Champions.
Briarcrest congratulates these two student athletes as they represent the State of Tennessee, the City of Memphis and Briarcrest Christian School at the US Soccer National Championships.
