Friday, August 30, 2013, GOAL Academy held their very first kickball tournament and it was a huge success! The weather was perfect, the turnout was amazing, and the kicks were plenty!
As the crowd watched on, intensity filled the air and sweat ran down the players’ faces. It was the championship game of the Inaugural GOAL Academy-Pueblo Kickball Tournament. Students and staff from the Pueblo area GOAL Academy, and one team of staff from Colorado Springs competed for the "GOALden Cup" on Friday, August 30th at Stauter Field in Pueblo, CO. Festivities included the main event, along with a barbecue and music by a Colorado National Guard representative. Ultimately, every player gave their all, but only one championship team could be crowned. Team Mix-A-Lot, comprised of Pueblo Downtown staff and students as well as Pueblo Mall students, took home the GOALden Cup. The team will hold on to the trophy and remain undisputed champs until the next competition is scheduled.
