Kristal, 11, won her age bracket with a score of 245 points (24-10’s and 1-5), which was also the highest score achieved by anyone at the competition in any age bracket. Grace, 10, won her age bracket with a score of 190 points. Kristal and Grace both play soccer for the U11 Tiger Sharks, who represent St. Charles Soccer in Division 1 play.
