Nile C. Kinnick’s boys and girls soccer team made school history some 1,000 miles apart on Friday afternoon at Yokosuka Naval Base and Kadena Air Base - with two wildly different outcomes in their respective Far East Division I soccer tournament finals.
Defending Division II champions also had a field day on the soccer pitch, as Christian Academy Japan’s boys and Yokota’s girls finished Wednesday unbeaten, with the Knights taking the top seed entering the boys double-elimination playoffs.
<p>Momomi Atkinson faced a tough choice entering the first day of Far East track and field meet Wednesday: focus on her best event, the 300 hurdles, or try to score more team points for Edgren by also taking on the 400.</p>
Kian Smith could not have felt worse about a victory. The senior striker and his Kadena Panthers teammates had just beaten host Matthew C. Perry 2-1 to take fifth place in the Perry Cup tournament on March 23.
