Pistole Park soccer complex was the sight of the 3-on-3 All-Star Shootout Saturday which featured 23 teams from across the state in five different divisions.
The tournament, which was the first of its kind this year for Pistole Park, was a giant success as Warren County Youth Soccer officials partnered with All-Star Sporting Events tournament director Justin Waggoner to hold the event which will become a yearly tournament.
Games from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. produced winners in five different divisions, including a local team in the under-8 boys division. Team Vazquez from McMinnville was the only local winner as the five-player squad swept through its bracket.
Other winning teams including Team Dynamite from Winchester in the under-8 girls, the Manchester Storm in under-10 girls, Crossville FC in the under-11 co-ed blue division and another Crossville FC team in the under-12 co-ed red division.
Warren County had nine teams participate in the tournament and those squads will get another chance soon to take the field at Pistole Park.
Warren County Youth Soccer president John Upchurch has announced the league will hold a similar tournament Saturday, July 20 at Pistole Park. The tournament will be open to teams from under-6 to adult in boys, girls and co-ed divisions.
The funds raised from the July tournament, along with the concession sales from All-Star Shootout Saturday, will go to help improve the field surface at Pistole Park and the bathroom facilities. The fee to play in July’s 3-on-3 tournament is $60 until June 30. Teams registering in July will pay $75.
All-Star Sporting events will be holding its next tournament July 13 in Tullahoma at the Johnson Lane Soccer Complex. Teams can register at www.allstarsportingevents. com.
