Alexandria midfielder Eryk Williamson was reportedly disappointed to not make the U.S. Olympic team, and instead found gold in the U.S. National Team’s dramatic 1-0 upset over defending champion Mexico in the in the Concacaf Gold Cup Final.
Williamson, a member of the state championship-winning T.C. Williams High School varsity soccer team in 2014, played most of the game Sunday in Las Vegas. This is the second straight tournament final won by the U.S. against Mexico, following their 3-2 win in June’s Concacaf Nations League Final. Williamson didn’t play in that game, however, as he was aded to the roster for the U.S. in the Gold Cup in July.
Williamson has played midfield for the Portland Timbers since 2018. As a Titan, Williamson was named First Team All-State, All-Conference and All-Region. He went on to the University of Maryland, where he was named Big Ten Midfielder of the Year.
A big congratulations to Eryk Williamson on his call up to the #USMNT for the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup!

If you had a chance to enhance a child’s future with a time commitment of less than 2 hours a week, how would you respond? You have that opportunity right now to join over 200 Alexandrians as a reading tutor volunteer with the Alexandria Tutoring Consortium (ATC).
ATC tutors work with one child in kindergarten, first, or second grade in Alexandria public schools who need extra help with reading. Tutors meet with their Book Buddy 1-2 times each week for 30 minutes October-May at school, during school hours. Many struggling readers only receive one-on-one instruction through this program, and it makes all the difference. Last year, ATC served 195 children, of whom 82% ended the year reading on grade level and 96% made substantial reading gains. But the need is great, and we are still seeing learning lags from the pandemic.
This year, ATC plans to significantly increase the size of the program to reach over 250 students and to serve every elementary school in Alexandria. This is very exciting news, but we will only succeed if we can recruit more tutors. ATC trains you, matches you with a child, and provides ongoing lesson materials and support.
