BYMS seventh graders, Aidan Amaya, Dylan Soto, Omar Jimenez, Jeremy Aron, and Andre Valdez are the winners of the 2018 Byms soccer tournament held during the month of May. The games were held on the field at breaks.
BYMS leadership and Mr. Kish created the tournament in reaction to the sport’s popularity. “So many students play soccer, so we decided to tap into the high interest,” explained Kish, who also stated the the tournament is only held once a year.
“There was no inspiration. We just like to mix up our tournaments, and we haven’t done a soccer tournament for a couple years”, according to Mr. Kish
Members of the winning team stated that the greatest challenge they had faced during the tournament was when they had to play a team of five while only three players were available on their team during that game. The winning team received a pizza party.
