Once again, it will be an explosion of color throughout the Davis community as more than 120 teams from throughout California and several Western states compete in this weekend’s girls division of the Legacy Showcase Tournament.

Next weekend, it will be the boys’ turn to show their talent.

“This is clearly the premier Northern California gathering for college coaches,” tournament director Mark Torguson told The Enterprise. “We have a record number of representatives from universities expected to watch the college hopefuls.”

Almost 1,500 soccer players ages 12 to 19 will be in town representing their clubs.

That means a rainbow of team jerseys being worn as the visitors take to the streets of Davis between games.

“That’s something that really matters to the community as whole,” Torguson said. “This tournament is not only a great chance for the participants to get noticed — it is a great, clean, economic complement to our city.”

With more than 100 games slated at venues ranging from Community Park to the Legacy fields off Chiles Road, the competition winds down with championship games on Sunday.

UC Davis head coach Maryclaire Robinson and assistant Rozanne DeWeese will be part of the scouting contingent that will see representatives from more than 50 schools on hand.

In addition to the Aggie mentors, Randy Dedini of Sacramento State, Keith Coleman of Pacific and Kim Sutton of Chico State have committed to attend, according to Torguson. Sacramento city, Solano, Cosumnes River, American River, Folsom Lake and Sierra community colleges also are sending coaches.

Fresno State, San Jose State, Oregon, Dominican University of California, Illinois State, Idaho State, St. Mary’s, University of San Francisco, Sonoma State, UC Santa Barbara and Kentucky “are part of the sampling of schools expected to be in Davis,” Torguson reports.
