Congratulations to the World Language Academy Girls and Gainesville Middle Schools Boys on becoming 2019 Hall County Middle School Soccer Cup Champions by virtue of their wins in the championship games last evening at Allen Creek Soccer Complex.
The WLA Girls prevailed 1-0 in a very exciting win over South Hall Middle. The Gainesville Boys' win was even more dramatic in that their game with East Hall ended tied after regulation with GMS emerging as victors in the overtime penalty kick period.
This was a historic benchmark for WLA as it is the first time they had ever advanced to the championships. Tournament Director Mike Little reported that it seemed as though the entire WLA student body was in the stands cheering on the Toros throughout the game. When the game ended the students stormed the field to celebrate with their champions. In his words, “It was a truly amazing sight.”
Special thanks to our annual MS Cup Director Mike Little, Director of Hall County Parks and Leisure Services, and his staff for once again staging a class event for all of our middle schools.
