This weekend many Sheridan hotels were full with soccer players and their families. 5 years ago, a soccer tournament was put together having 86 teams; now, the Mars Soccer Cup has over 100 teams from all over Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota. Mars Candy has been the major sponsor for the event, and it has been held at the Big Horn Events Center for all five years.

Legerski was happy about the fair weather they had all weekend. There were also giant inflatable rides, lots of food, and over 4500 people at the tournament. Holiday Inn Assistant Manager, Linda Caldwell, tells us about their weekend.
This year the tournament was also a preview of the State 3-A and 4-A Soccer Championships that will take place in Sheridan over Memorial Day Weekend.
