Fourth Graders Take 2nd Place in Ducks Shootout Tournament


Fourth graders from Stoneybrooke’s San Juan and Ladera Ranch campuses came out ahead of 22 other teams in the Ducks Street Hockey championship Saturday! Our fourth grade team made Stoneybrooke history Saturday May 9, 2015 by making it to the final championship round of the S.C.O.R.E. Shootout Tournament sponsored by the Anaheim Ducks. Starting off with a 4-0 shutout, Stoneybrooke went on to the championship round for the first time ever, winning second place in the tournament overall. The team was comprised of Andrew, Ava, Jake (goalie), Andrew, Lauren, Roman, Gavin, Dillon, Russell, Cole, Kira, Luke, Luciana, Joshua, and Sydney and coached by Pete Fronte, Paul Brien, Tom Wright, and Gary Shoup. In the final game, Friends Christian School proved to be a formidable opponent, which was no surprise as they have won the Shootout championship 7 out of the last 8 years. Even so, the Stoneybrooke team never gave up, fighting hard to the final buzzer. The highlight of the championship round actually happened before the game began. Friends Coach Darren Berezowski called both teams to “center ice.” The two opposing teams came together in a single circle as Coach Berezowski pointed out that two Christian teams were about to compete in this championship game. “So,” he asked the players, “no matter who wins, who gets the glory?” Without hesitation, the fourth grade boys and girls from both schools answered loudly, “God!” If you would like more details about the tournament, check out this link: Ducks Host 350 Fourth Graders
