THE Sacred Heart School-Hijas de Jesus Girls football team will be taking part in the Alaska Cup 2007 at the Alabang Country Club in Manila tomorrow.
PaBol top honcho Jonathan Maximo said he is bringing the same team to the Alaska Cup that competed last year in the Girls 16-Under division, where they managed to enter the quarterfinal round.
“Last year, the same team competed in the division, which was an older age group for them. This year, we are hopeful that with the right age-group for them, they will perform better,” said Maximo.
Leading the team is keeper Julienne Canoy, who was named the MVP in the 2007 San Roque Football Festival. She will be joined by Patti Liu, Bea Maximo, Erika Casas, Banban Yu, Lea Ann Calejesan, Jackie Ting, Nicole Chanlim, Mara Dado, Maris Ting, Renee Songalia and Karina Hilado.
They will be going up against Makati FC, St. Scholastica (Bacolod), Davao United FC, Bene FC A, Bene FC B, Faith Academy, Flames FC, St. Pedro Poveda A and B, Pampanga Agricultural College, Xavier Alumni FC, Perpetual Help (Las Piñas), Miriam College, De la Salle (Lipa), Westfield (Angeles City), La Salle College (Antipolo), Southville International School and British School Manila.
