FYI, the tournament raised and donated monies to the Siblings Program at CHOP.

Interesting... medals for actually accomplishing something. Congratulations boys. You should be an inspiration to the parents and kids who covet participation trophies with no underlying value. Keep up the great work, team. Winning tournaments is no easy feat and helping raise money on top of it is that much more satisfying.

In the interest of factual reporting... "The GotSoccer rankings came out last night as the UD Strikers moved to #35 (from #51) in the Pennsylvania East rankings, as well as significantly up in the Region 1 (PA, NJ, DE, etc...) and National rankings. The Upper Dublin Patch mistyped our ranking as #25, so I wanted everyone to be aware of the official rankings." The whole team played hard and played together. Strong team effort. Looking ahead the team continues to compete in the Spring Rock League and has another regional tournament the weekend of June 2/3 in New Jersey.
