 Rancho Capistrano - Welcome Back

Follow Day 655: Eagles Soccer at Rancho Capistrano.  We were here last September for a tournament, one of Alyssa's final tournaments before going back into surgery.  Other than a scar, Alyssa is playing at full confidence and back to help lead her new team to victory.
