Berlin, MD – Worcester Preparatory School sophomore returns to the States as a Mediterranean International Cup (MIC) champion.
Worcester Prep is proud to announce that sophomore Ben McGovern represented Team ISL U16 in MIC held in Costa Brava, Spain. The MIC is an internationally renowned soccer tournament with over 30 countries represented, this year’s competition included: Liverpool FC, Juventus, Borussia Dortmund, and Real Madrid CF. Players for this Barcelona-based team were selected from a multi-tiered nationwide search process. Team ISL faced some of the most challenging opponents in the tournament including last year's champion Olympique de Marseille.  The team's performance on the pitch was exceptional, and Team ISL emerged as the champions of their bracket with an impressive 6-2 record.
