Tuck’s Argentina team had an incredible playoff run and finished the season with an impressive 17-3-2 record. The playoffs were a double elimination tournament which meant that each game had to have a winner.  We were knocked into the losers bracket in 3rd round so our road would be difficult to win it all.  We played 6 games in 6 days through cold and rainy nights and sunny warm days.  The games were extremely exciting. We played 5 OT games and 4 were decided by penalty kicks. Team Argentina finished Second but the emotional roller coaster experience will last a life time.  Tuck started practicing for basketball.  He is playing for a club team with a lot of his friends and he will play in the Hermosa Beach Youth League. Tucker plays tennis and swims weekly.  He enjoys being on student council, reading and math.
Estelle’s AYSO soccer team “The Golden Eagles” finished 2-5-2.  The girls had fun season and learned how to play soccer a little better. Estelle is playing in her first season of basketball for the Blue Lightnings. We have been working on her dribbling and shooting skills. She swims and plays tennis weekly.  She is very excited for Santa’s arrival.
