making history

Yesterday, ASIJ girls soccer made it to the championship game and ended up beating Kubasaki 1-0. That was the FIRST time in history that an Okinawan team didn't win. Here is a small excerpt from the stars and stripes news paper. I'm sure there will be a longer article later on today.

"Away goes the bitter taste from the mouths of the American School In Japan Mustangs girls, who suffered an 8-1 defeat against Kadena in the 2006 Girls Class AA final. They rebounded smartly for a 1-0 shutout of defending champion Kubasaki in Friday's title tilt. Junior Ivie Myntti's 10th goal of the season was also the Mustangs' most important in their school-best 15-2-1 campaign."

ASIJ now finally has a far east banner.

a toast to the future

I just got my cap and gown pictures back. I can't believe I have a month left until I graduate. . .

Now I'll be off to bigger and better things as I say goodbye to my fellow mustangs and say hello to my future cougars. =]
