Veterans and Houston County Soccer programs teamed up to put on a very successful high school soccer tournament "The Freedom Cup" this past weekend. This was the first of its kind in Warner Robins where two schools hosted 16 teams from around the state over the three day event. Freedom Field, shared by both schools, and Houston County's "The Pasture" served as excellent venues for the 24 matches (12 Girls, 12 Boys). Visiting schools included the hosts, Veterans and Houston County, along with Jones County, Perry, Dublin, Colquitt Co, Westlake, Etowah, and LaGrange high schools varsity soccer teams. Volunteers from HoCo and Veterans served up true southern hospitality all weekend and were given praise by the visiting coaches for putting on "such a well-run event". But the best part about the tournament, was the soccer! The players "put it all out there" in very competitive matches culminating in two exciting final matches. Etowah high school, a 4AAAAAAA soccer powerhouse all the way from Woodstock GA, claimed the title in the Women's and Men's finals against Veterans and Houston County, respectively. Both matches were highly competitive finales to a great weekend of soccer! Thanks to all who participated! LET FREEDOM RING!!!
