Day 3 from Alabama

(Maine South seniors Will Krug and Andrew Terenzio were gracious enough to share their thoughts from the National Select 7-on-7 tournament at Hoover High School in Alabama. Keep checking back here for more from the tournament this weekend)

Today was the final day of the tournament. We began at 8 this morning against Austin High School. The first game was great because we came out with lots of energy and enthusiasm and won.

Shortly after that, only about an eight-minute rest, we went up against the No. 1- seed Bob Jones High School. It was a great game, always close. In the end though we lost 25-24.

After the game everyone was really upset. We ended up watching a few more games after that. A couple of players even ended up buying vuvuzelas. They made a lot of noise with those as we watched.

We then returned back to the hotel, got our stuff, and are right now driving over to see the University of Alabama’s Tuscaloosa campus. Then we’ll head over to the airport for our flight home.

The tournament was a great experience. We faced great competition and we definitely got better.
