Thursday, 21 March, 27 Cowell students participated in a 90 minute clinic with professional coaches at the Denver Sports Center. Each participant received a McDonald's Nike Dri Fit uniform, backpack, and some had the opportunity to attend the USA-Costa Rica game Friday the 22nd.
Denver was a winter wonderland just in time for the U.S. Men's National Team to take on Costa Rica at Dick's Sporting Goods Park! Zuriah Castillo, Carlos Aguilar, Axel Ruiz, and Stephanie Mejia were among the 22 children who walked out starters before joining coaches to watch the match Friday night.
It was exciting to have USA win the World Cup qualifier in our back yard, and even with the record-breaking snow it was a special event for some very happy America SCORES poet-athletes.
