Congratulations to Wando for their fifth tournament title in six seasons as the Warriors edged a tough Clover side, 1-0, in the Championship of the 2017 NIKE Palmetto Cup hosted by Brookland-Cayce High School.

Wando, ranked #1 nationally, is now 16-0 and motored through the four-day event in a methodical fashion with wins vs. Immaculate Conception Academy of Mayaguez, Puerto Rico (2-0), Fort Mill (5-1), Cardinal Newman (3-1), South Aiken (6-0), and Clover (1-0). Forward Charlie Marino, a Junior, was named the Tournament Most Valuable Player.

South Aiken won its group with a 2-0-1 mark before falling to the perennial soccer power, Wando.

Clover reached the Finals with a pair of second-half goals that propelled the Blue Eagles to a 2-0 victory vs. host B-C, which advanced to the NPC Semifinals for the sixth time in the last seven seasons. Clover enjoyed its best NPC ever in six trips to the tournament.
