Soccer tournament attracts 300 participants

More than 300 players took part in the 10th annual Rock On! 3v3 Soccer Tournament May 24 and 25 at Fort Nugent Park.

Three teams from Oak Harbor and one from Coupeville were among the 11 division winners.

Missed Calls (boys 13-14; Zachary Brown, Ethan Cain, Travis Mason, Sachin DeSilva), Benchwarmers (boys 15-18; Alex Krantz, Garth Westcott, Isaac Swenson, Branson Corwin, Peter Vizzone) and Forfeit (girls 15-18; Sabrina Wilke, Alyssa Eden, Nalani Gabbert, Lauryn Plush, Hayley Lundstrom) all included players from Oak Harbor and took home first-place medals.

An adult division was added this year, and Coupeville's Kicks by Dre (Andre Stone, Grayson Knott, Evan Ameluxen-Coleman, Zane Bundy, Travis Curtin) captured the initial title.

The Blazers (boys 9-10), Street Signs (boys 15-18), Redhook (men's) and Klumzy Kleats (girls 13-14), all with Oak Harbor players, finished second in their divisions.

Twenty-three of the 63 teams that participated were from Whidbey Island. Other teams traveled from Monroe, Sequim, Bellingham, Lynden, Burlington, Ellensburg, La Conner, Silverdale, Lynnwood, Snohomish, Gig Harbor and Longview.

Event organizer River Powers said, "I had tremendous volunteer support during the tournament that really helped it all come together nicely. I'm already making plans for next year's event, which will include a uniform contest."
