The Tucson Soccer Academy's Oro Valley team traveled to Salt Lake City Utah this past week to participate in a tournament. 

The team, which is made up of all girls under the age of 18, spent June 12th-17th in Utah for the tournament. 

The team played against other teams from Montana, Idaho and others. 

Even though the team didn't come out on top like they hoped, they said the experience and the trip were well worth it. 

That held especially true for one of the team members, Payton Watkins, who played in her final game as a part of the team. 

Watkins, who is headed off to college next year, said being a part of the team was not only a learning experience but a bonding one.
