Julia: Soccer in Arizona (Jan. 2022)

My 14-year-old granddaughter, Julia, had a great time in Mesa, Arizona this past week. She and her team from Hawaii played their hearts out in the ODP West Regional Soccer Tournament. Julia scored 9 points in the tournament, controlling the ball and passing very well. Unfortunately, they lost to SoCal. However, they beat Washington in the consolation game. All in all, it was an exciting tournament.

As usual, her father, Grant, was her chaperone. He said the weather in Mesa, Arizona was very cold, ranging between 40-70F. Brrrr.

    It almost astounds me that life goes on like it does in some areas.

    She’s sure pretty, and apparently a good player as well! 🙂

    Your granddaughter is beautiful Gigi, so nice seeing her team’s floral headpieces. But if it was 40-70F where I live, we’d be outside in t-shirts & shorts too!

    Good for her! She’s so pretty, too! It sounds like a wonderful time for the team.

    How cool to be able to travel so far for a sporting event. We hardly made it to the next town. She is such a pretty girl and obviously a fine player. Like Doug, I really liked the head pieces.

    How wonderful that she is able to travel and participate. I don’t think kids’ sports ever shut down during the pandemic. Kids seem very resilient.

    Congratulations to your granddaughter and her team. Most important they enjoy their games and perform well. Good that her father can accompany her as her chaperone.

    How wonderful that Julia took part in the ODP West Regional Soccer Tournament. That is quite an accomplishment and you all must be so proud of her. The weather over here must be a shock to the system. In our part of Virginia, tonight it is getting down to 13 deg. F. Great photos, especially loved the ones of Julia and her Dad, and the ones with the team are lovely too.

  19. Diana Says:

    Oh what fun for her to be in AZ to play! She is a beautiful young lady, Gigi. I bet that weather was a bit shocking for them. Here we were in the low 20s today. That would have been a teensy bit cold to play lol. Blessings to you, my friend!
