19 Feb Hutton Soccer Star Shines in Las Vegas Tournament

This past weekend, 8th grader Ty, who plays for the Washington East Premier 04 soccer team traveled with his team to Las Vegas to compete in “The City of Las Vegas Mayor’s Cup International Showcase”. ¬†Hutton’s Executive Director, Chud Wendle’s son also plays for the team and Ty took the trip down with their family. The team is coached by Jason Sandobal.

The team went 3-and-1 and placed in a very competitive tournament, where hundreds of college coaches and recruiters were in attendance. Ty scored the winning goal in their second game, which put the team into the playoffs! Their only loss was to Crossfire, which is one of the top teams in the state of Washington. This tournament is one of the nation’s mainstage tournaments for soccer.

One of the best parts of the weekend, was when Ty’s friendship family, Tom, Jackie and their three daughters, surprised him by making the trip down to watch him play! They rooted Ty on at each game and we are so grateful for their love and support of Ty.

We’re so proud of all of Ty’s hard work and we know he has such a bright future!


Ty with his Hutton friendship family.
