South Texas Coed State Cup 2021

We were all looking forward to the tournament, especially after last year's COVID cancellation, but we were rained out.  

 

We'll try again next year on the same weekend, May 21 and 22, at Bear Creek but without the ducks swimming on the fields...

 

See you next year!
