A sport that used to be completely unknown by many members of our community is not anymore. This month, the term “FUTSAL” gained a whole lot of meaning. The first CATS Futsal Tournament, filled our school’s gym with people who desired to see what it was all about and which teams would become the big winners.

Competing in the Gym were eight teams in the men’s brackets, and four teams in the women’s brackets. Many had creative names like THE GUCCIER GANG, FAB5, and STAGE 5.  Among the twelve teams, three of them were entirely made up of faculty and staff, who joyfully took up the challenge to compete against student teams.

After a lot of fun, and sweat, CLUB DE TOBY and BIRITEIRAS won the prizes; fifty dollar gift cards for the Cheesecake Factory. The MVP’s of the tournament, Thiago Peres and Paola Guzman, were chosen by our voluntary referees. So, FUTSAL, another very successful sports event was added to our community. And there are more events to come. Students can expect the CATS Madness Basketball Tournament in the beginning of April, and hopefully a Football Flag Tournament later in the semester.
