Thunderbirds play perfect season


November 29, 2011

The Granite Falls Thunderbirds, a U11 girls soccer team, just finished a perfect season, undefeated 10-0-0.

The team is unique in that they chose to play the girls up a full year since they felt they were not challenged in the previous year. A few of the girls are actually playing up two years.

“We are ‘living the questions’ and trying all sorts of training strategies and competitive opportunities,” coach Tija Schmiesing said.

They will be going into the Founder’s Cup, a state cup tournament.
