About this Article
In one of the area’s silliest girls soccer traditions that makes a serious point, St. Charles North every year takes a plastic toy, dubs it the award for the team’s player of the match — and then players go about decorating this toy through the season as it moves from player to player. A year ago, the toy was a plastic lawn mower. This year, the players are decorating a plastic yellow school bus. And Tuesday, the award went to a player who’s made the wheels go round and round for the North Stars for four years and kept the team motoring through a 2-0 Upstate Eight River Conference Division victory over Geneva: Kelly Manski.
