Del Mar/Carmel Valley Sharks Girls U14 All Star soccer team tops at Mesa Tournament
The Del Mar/Carmel Valley Sharks Girls U14 All Star soccer team won the Mesa Tournament this past weekend, held at Hickman Field in Kearny Mesa. The local girls were the only team out of 97 in the tournament that did not allow even one goal during the six games played over Saturday and Sunday, beating talented teams including Poway and Vista, who they played in the final, beating 3-0. It was a complete team effort, with stellar passing and assists from midfielders Courtney Jackson and Julia Little, eight girls scored 18 goals between them. Malvika Jain, Stavi Augur, Jaden Watkins, Abby Ausmus , Tamar Ervin, Christiana Rigopoulos, Brynn Froehlich, and Cami Doheny all posted one or more goals. Coaches Marianne Rigopoulos and Mark Watkins worked quickly with only four practices, to turn the girls into a tight knitted team, and the girls are now pleading to play in more tournaments.
