Heat Youth Team Wins “Copa Salud 2009” - October 15, 2009

Thursday, October 15, 2009 (Laredo, TX):

Under the direction of Heat player Juan de Dios Ibarra, a group of players from several Under 13 youth teams from the Laredo area were selected to represent Laredo at the First Annual “Copa Salud 2009” in San Antonio last weekend.

The “Copa Salud 2009” was a small tournament put together by several South Texas Mexican Consulate Offices in order to showcase local youth soccer teams and promote health initiatives in the South Texas Region.

The participating Mexican Consulates were from Austin, San Antonio and Laredo.

The four team tournament was played at the Brooks Fields in southeast San Antonio.

At the end of the day, the event was a success for the different Mexican Consulate offices from the area and all the players had fun participating in a great day of soccer. The team from Laredo, representing the Heat, was the overall winner by beating all the other three teams participating in the tournament and they returned to Laredo as “Copa Salud 2009” Inaugural Champions.
