Congratulations to Commercial Park’s 13-15 yrs. old 3-on-3 Girls’ Soccer Team, who finished in first place in the 2015 Chicago Park District Citywide Soccer Tournament!  Their win means they are the top 3-on-3 girls’ soccer team in the entire city for their age group, and they brought home a banner and trophy to prove it.
