As a reminder, the 2015-2016 Montverde Academy’s Girls’ Varsity Soccer Program (10-1) will be hosting their 3rd annual Women’s Invitational Showcase Tournament (WIST) on Friday and Saturday (December 11th and 12th)! For the past two years, the soccer showcase has included 4 teams, but this year’s tournament has expanded to 8 teams. The teams in attendance are some of the top in the state: The Bolles School, Flagler Palm Coast High School, Merritt Island High School, Navarre High School, Newsome High School, Ponte Vedra High School, and Vero Beach High School. Admission to WIST will be $5 per day. Please view WIST Brackets. For more information on 2015 WIST games and times, please visit the following article, “Navarre Raiders expect big test at Montverde tourney,” from yesterday’s Pensacola News Journal, and also HERE; from yesterday’s Orlando Sentinel.
2015’s WIST will be a great level of competition and will help prepare the girls for another tournament – the National Elite Prep Showcase – being held in Fort Worth, Texas, next month. The 3rd annual WIST , as well as the trip to Texas will be a great opportunity for the Lady Eagles to play against many elite out-of-state teams and for players to gain exposure to college coaches. Top Drawer Soccer ranked the Lady Eagles #21 in a preseason poll. Last season, MVA’s Lady Eagles Varsity Soccer team’s record was 19-0-1 which led to a #1 National Ranking by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America as well as a #8 ranking by Top Drawer Soccer.
