Congratulations to our 2016 Women’s Varsity team finishing 2nd in our region and advancing to the State Playoffs. Our girls finished their season with an exciting win vs Pope last night that went into overtime then decided by penalty kicks. They earned a first round home game vs Dacula on Wednesday, April 27th, 7:00pm. Our concessions committee will soon be adding the first round game to our SignUp Genius link so if you still need to fulfill your concessions volunteer hours, please sign up as soon as the game has been added. Please come out to Raider Valley and cheer on our Lady Raiders.
Our 2016 Men’s Varsity team had a tough region season this year with some very exciting wins and some very close losses. With a heartbreaking loss to Pope last night they finished in a 4-way tie for 4th. Unfortunately they did not advance to the State Playoffs in the head to head tie break. We wish our seniors the best of luck in their college endeavors and want to thank all of you for being part of Walton Soccer. You are all great Raiders.
