Memorial Day weekend 2017 was one to remember for ATD. Both the U13 girls and U17 boys, playing under the Maryland Rush Montgomery banner, won their respective MDW tournaments. The U13G MRM Gray Cosmos won the Virginia Cannon Cup, winning all four of their games, and capping it off with a resounding 6-1 victory in the championship game. Coach Dennis Schardt congratulated the girls and thanked parents, saying "I couldn't have asked for more from the girls. In the end they got to taste the feeling of being a champion... thank you to all the parents for all the support you gave over Memorial Day Weekend."
The U17B MRM Rush 00, coming in as the lowest ranked team (according to GotSoccer) in their bracket, swept their group and won a nail-biting final, 1-0 in extra time, to cement themselves as champions of the Potomac Memorial Day Tournament. Over the course of the three days and four games, the team gave up only three goals, scored eight, and had two shutouts.
Both teams will now look to finish their seasons on a high note as they battle for promotion to the next division in the NCSL and EDP, respectively.
