Letter: So long spring, hello summer


To the editor,

Spring season has ended and summer camps are beginning. It has been a great season for all of our recreational and Dinomites teams. I saw some great soccer playing during the season.   hope all the kids had a fun season and learned some skills along the way.  Congratulations to all the travel teams on completing your spring season with some tremendous games.  A special shout out to the following teams: girls U12 travel comp Wildcats won their South Central District League Championship and the Dynamo U16 girls premier team was the spring 2014 tournament champions at the New Jersey Girls College Showcase Tournament. As I write, there are still teams that have to finish up their league play for the season, so PYS may still have more champions to list in the August paper.
