What a weekend!

Hunter's high school soccer team made it all the way to the state final championship game and it was held in Shreveport, LA last Saturday night. Hunter and the team left on Friday morning after a big send off from the school with everyone cheering and the band playing. They had practice once they got there and saw the Division 3 final game that night in the HUGE stadium that they would play in the next night. They hung out together as a team the next day and watched motivational movies. They played the #1 ranked team in the state which is also #3 ranked in the nation- Hunter's team was ranked #6 and not expected to make it this far. They played a GREAT, hard-fought game and were tied 1-1 up until the last 2 minutes of the game. A controversial call made by the ref gave the other team a free kick and they scored and won- BOO! It was a memory that I'm sure Hunter will never forget and made for an exciting Senior year in soccer!
