Godbold Representing Team USA This Summer
• Clarke Godbold is only a sophomore at Peninsula High School, but his achievements are far beyond his years.
Godbold has been a varsity starter since freshman year and has helped lead Peninsula to consecutive winning seasons in 2017 and 2018. Now, Godbold will have to put his skills to a tougher task as he represents team USA this summer. Godbold traveled to Costa Rica and competed at a tryout for many days.
Only 18 players from around the country were selected to try out and six were cut, leaving 12 roster spots. Godbold was happy to announce that he earned a spot on the roster after days of hard work.
The team is mainly juniors and sophomores and will compete against other countries this summer. Godbold called the whole experience, ‘’exciting and very cool to go to Costa Rica.’’ Godbold has been playing competitively since 8th grade and is beyond thrilled for this opportunity.
