Tournament support

TO THE EDITOR: This letter is to publicly thank all the wonderful volunteers, coaches, athletes, fans, families and friends that helped make our youth soccer tournament such a success.

First and foremost, our appreciation goes out to our pre-K-to-6th-grade athletes, who have shown outstanding sportsmanship, leadership, athleticism and motivation to succeed and learn about the game of soccer.

Thank you to our coaches (and any parents who assisted): James Leibeck, grades 5/6; Greg Cassavaugh, grades 3/4; Jessica Bridge and Erica Blanchard, grades 1/2; and Jennifer Leibeck, grades pre-K-K.

Also, thanks to: Mr. Broadwell, Brandy Pierce, Randy Swires, Mike Douglas and the rest of the faculty and staff at WCS; Junior National Honor Society, National Honor Society, Key Club, Boys and Girls Modified and Varsity Soccer Athletes; Clarence Russell; the Village Meat Market; Byrd’s Country Store; Shingle Street Septic; Mr. Hatch and the Willsboro Town Council; Travis Crowningshield and the Willsboro DPW; Gail Drinkwine, Sue Swires, Alan Thompson, Jack Thompson, Todd Pierson, Paul Arnold and Michelle Cross; Jack Oliver, Kenesa Kohen, Geordie Hearn, Mat Longware, Lucas Cross, Zach Pierson, Nick Arnold, Nate Yeager, Rylee Pierson, Trina Bigelow, Darrian Sweatt, Payton Gough, Gabby Yeager, Kelsey Sloper, Austin Ferris, Connor Sheehan and Seth Swires.

Also, Justin Joslyn for donating his popcorn machine and teams from Ticonderoga, Crown Point, Moriah, Westport, E’town, Keene, Lake Placid and Saranac Lake.

It is because of our fantastic community that programs like the Willsboro Youth Commission succeed. Thank you does not seem like enough, but please know that your support and dedication is greatly appreciated.
