Cairo American College soccer program wins a triple in Spain
Cairo American College’s Junior Varsity Soccer teams won two gold medals and a Sportsmanship award at an international football tournament in Spain.
The JV Soccer teams of Cairo American College (CAC) have just arrived back to Cairo with extra carry-on luggage, returning from a four-day tournament in Salou, Spain (an hour outside of Barcelona).
Both the girls and boys soccer program brought home gold – as well as the Sportsmanship award. Cairo American College, a high school based in Maadi, travels to Europe every spring to compete in the AMAC Tournament with their Junior Varsity soccer teams, joining other international schools from the Mediterranean, including Spain, Lisbon, Morocco and Tunisia.
Both teams won the final with a 2-0 clean sheet. The female Screaming Eagles scored two in the second half to win the gold against a strong Barcelona side, while the guys scored two goals in the first half, to hold off a skilful Tunis team.
The icing on the cake came during the final ceremony, when the Sportsmanship Award, given to the school which through various rubrics scored highest on fair play and attitude, was awarded to CAC.
Equally appreciated was the cheering and support of the other teams gave to CAC during their games.
Both the girls and boys teams had been training since early February preparing for this tournament. Despite dealing with some obstacles along the way, including key injuries to the boy’s teams, it didn’t stop them from each team giving their all, and showcasing a great performance in Spain.
Coach Zane Ahmadein summed it up well: “Winning always feels great, sure. But seeing how the kids have grown over the season though hard work, come together as a team, and taken a few more steps towards their full potential, well, that’s really what it’s all about.”
