Sure, lots of people were watching Team USA win the World Cup in soccer this morning - but this afternoon a lot of Acadiana folks were glued to YouTube, watching a Crowley family take international honors in another kind of soccer.
The Rue family, Terry, Keisha and Sullivan, are members of the U.S.A. Table Soccer team. Both the USA Men's and the USA Women's teams won the international championship today in Murcia, Spain.
Terry is a member of the men's team, and Keisha and their daughter, Sullivan, are members of the women's team.
Here's a picture of Keisha, third from right, and Sullivan, seventh from right, with the other members of the women's team and their trophy.

Terry is wearing the red shoes, and Sullivan is on the far right. Terry Rue won the bronze in men's doubles with teammate Billy Pappas, and Sullivan won the bronze in women's singles. Although she's competing in the women's division and not the junior division, Sullivan is a high school student; she attends Notre Dame High School.
