Starkville Soccer Association president Sean Owen calls soccer the “universal sport.”
Over the weekend, it was just that as kids from all across the state descended on Starkville for the Frostbite Tournament.
“It was great,” Owen said. “We ended up having 60 teams that came from everywhere from Oxford to Flowood to Meridian to Greenwood. Overall, it was great. It was what we wanted the Frostbite to be. It met all the goals we are trying to do and really highlighted what Starkville has to offer.”
Even Mother Nature was on board for the tournament.
Despite a little setback from Friday's overnight rains, the skies cleared and temperatures rose providing what Owen refers to as “good soccer weather.”
