Pull date: 
Wed, 06/15/2011

Girls Under-10 Team Forrest, the Santa Monica Saints Over-Here, swept the table May 1 at the Apricot Jam (Silver Division) to take home the winner's trophy. This is a team that came within a point of playing in the medal bracket at Locomotion earlier in the season, and which has earned a reputation of "bringing it" to tournament play.

Pull date: 
Sat, 05/14/2011

Coach Sammy Romo's Spring Select team won gold in the Founders Cup Championship in the GU12 Division!

In the championship final, the two teams combined for three yellow cards, a rarity in GU12 matches. Refusing to be intimidated by the physical nature of the match, the Saints prevailed 2-0.
