Two local 2002 born players were given the good news that they made the BC Summer Games Team in their Geographical Area. Caylah Lemon and Tiana Couper were both delighted to hear they made the BC Summer Games Soccer Teams they tried out for.
Caylah who lives in Surrey made the Zone 3 Team and Tiana who lives in North Delta made the Zone 4 Team. The girls are both good friends but for this Tournament in Nanaimo they will have to wear different colours and bring back the memories of their Mini Soccer days where they competed against each other from U6 - U9 every week within Surdel Girls Soccer Club. Congratulations and good luck girls!
