3-on-3 Silver


For the second year in a row, six East Tennessee soccer stars that include Chelsea Hunt of 2006 Class AAA state champion Bearden High School, Casey Ulrich of Farragut and Gretchen Sutch of Knoxville Catholic, won the silver medal in the “Kick-It 3v3 World Championships,” Jan. 13-14 at Disney Wide World of Sports complex in Orlando, Fla. The Six Pak Pakkers competed in the top U-17 Competitive Division. In pool play Six Pak defeated “Trouble Brewing” from Lawrenceburg, Ind., “Melck Duds” from Versailles, Ky. and “Diamonds” from Yardley, Pa. In the semifinal, the Pakkers edged “Pure Business” from Fort Collins, Colo, 6-5 in overtime to set up the title-game showdown. Five of the Six Pak girls play for the 90 Impact Nike I competitive soccer team based in Knoxville. With only three players on the field at one time, it is a game of continuous action, emphasizing foot skills, speed, endurance and rapid decision-making. The game is played on a smaller field (30-by-40 yards), with smaller goals and no goalkeepers. Team members, left to right, are coach Alisa Hunt, Josie Rix (Girls Preparatory School), Martha Hall. (IMG Soccer Academy), Sutch, Hunt, Ulrich and Morgan Gruenenfelder (Sweetwater).
