Eastside High School the 17th 2009 Palmetto Cup Champions

Palmetto Cup Champions
Congratulations to the mens soccer team for winning the 17th Annual 2009 Palmetto Cup hosted by Brookland Cayce High School. Since the inception of the Palmetto Cup in 1993, the tournament has evolved from a four-team, four-match event into the premier in-season high school boys tournament in the Southeast. This year’s tournament featured teams from Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Alabama, as well as SC. The Palmetto Cup is recognized as one of the top prep boys soccer tournaments in the nation.The tournament has undergone numerous changes in the 15-year history as it started as: the "Brookland-Cayce Classic" in 1993; and then was titled the "Spring Break Shootout" from 1994-97; before changing to the "Palmetto State Spring Break Shootout"; while the 2002 event ushered in a change to the "Palmetto Cup" to reflect the diversity of teams competing. Annually, the Palmetto Cup attracts great crowds, collegiate coaches from NCAA Division I through NAIA programs, and great notoriety to high school soccer. Known for its competitive and wide-open matches, the atmosphere of this four-day event is unparalleled in South Carolina prep soccer.
