Dear Iron Horse Players and Parents,
Read more about Iron Horse this week below. Topics are:
This weeks schedule is below. I am starting to add the makeups from last Friday's rainouts. The high school practice makeup is this Thursday after skills. The Secretariat and 2028 makeup is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, May 30th. The time and field will be dependent on the T99 schedule and coaches availability so we just need to wait until we know that to proceed. 2029 had a couple of extra practices built into their schedule since they were finished later than everyone else so that will not be made up at this time.
At the bottom of this email is an updated list of coaches with emails by team. The original I sent a few weeks ago did not have our college players listed by team so I added them as well. I am getting a fair amount of notifications about missing practices. If you can reach out to your coaches and team managers instead it would be great!
There are no longer any perfect brackets! CLICK HERE for all of the results to date. The leaders are all tied and listed below. Penn State is the team that has overall hurt brackets the most. The bottom half of the bracket has been easier to pick than the top half overall.
Our Dallas alumni and true Freshman Mac Hobbs is getting a decent amount of playing time in the tournament for Penn State.
Sophomore Matthew Nunes is still in the hunt for UVA. Nunes drove up from Houston for years to do our goalie skills and also played for Iron Horse Dallas before Iron Horse Houston existed.
Bryce Walker from Notre Dame is a junior and played for Iron Horse Austin.
We were sad to see our Michigan players lose this weekend but what a breakout season the Wolverines had. Our 2019 Dallas alum, Jacob Jackson had a great game and scored 2 goals this weekend.
Our 3 Army players also came out on the short end of the stick. Christian Fournier from Austin had a good game with several ground balls and takeaways.
Lenoir-Rhyne and Tobin Miller, HTX alum, are going to the NCAA DII championship game.
Salisbury and Kellen Smaw, DTX alum, are going to the NCAA DIII championship game.
