The Mealy Mountain Collegiate Girls Soccer team was busy squeezing in some last minute practice, prior to the start of the Provincial 3A Girls High School Soccer Championships this weekend.
Andrew Rowsell is the coach of the MMC girls team, as well as a co-convenor of the tournament.
He noted this is the second time MMC has hosted this event.
“We want to defend our title,” said Rowsell, who coached the girls to victory last season.
“The girls are training hard and we want to see lots of people out to watch and cheer the girls on.”
