The 16th Annual PepsiCo Showdown Girls is a high school sporting event unlike any other, featuring 96 high schools, 2,500+ girls soccer players, more than 200 communities and nearly 200 games in an eight-day span. And to top it off, all of those teams and players are at Olympic Park in Schaumburg on back-to-back Saturdays – starting with Opening Day on April 7 and finishing with a massive celebration on April 14 for Championship Saturday. Bob Narang breaks down the U.S. NATIONAL GUARD of the PepsiCo Showdown Girls.
Crete-Monee senior Sydney Kent: “The (PepsiCo Showdown) gives us a lot of exposure, so people know more about Crete-Monee. A lot of people don’t have any idea where Crete is, and this helps put us on the radar with a lot of different teams.” Steve Millar has the story.
