MVU Black wins memorial tournament

Submitted By June Heaton

It was a bittersweet victory for MVU-93-GIRLS-BLACK, Fremont's U18 soccer team, as they took First Place in the Hannah Welker Memorial Tournament, in Morgan Hill, September 25, 2011. The team dedicated their win to the tournament's namesake, Hannah Welker, a former teammate of seven participating MVU girls' (including three from MVU-GIRLS-WHITE). Hannah was tragically killed in a car accident in 2008 at the young age of 12.

With their hair coifed with green and white ribbons that donned the number 47, Hannah's jersey colors and number, MVU BLACK shut out all four of their opponents in the two day tournament. Afterwards, the team accepted their awards from Hannah's father, Blaine, and sister Katie, who were pleased the MVU girls were on the receiving end of the tournament prizes.
