Germantown, WI, February 25th, 2014 – This past weekend represented significant success for our younger players at FC Wisconsin. On Saturday February 22nd our U11 Black, U11 white, and U12 Black all competed at the UW-Green Bay Futsal Classic. Our U11 Black went 2-1 for the day, with our U11 White going 1-2 and both teams showed significant improvement throughout the day, representing the club in an excellent fashion.
The U12 Black took home the Championship winning their first two games 6-5, and 8-4, before defeating Appleton SC, 7-1 in the Championship game. This is the second championship that the U12 Black has won this year after winning the Brookfield Indoor Championship earlier in the season.
The Club is also proud to congratulate Austin Holtebeck who is playing two years up on our U14 USSDA Academy, for being invited to attend the US Soccer National Team Training Center which was held in Bridgeview Illinois on Saturday. This Training Center was invite only for the top 2000, and 2001 birth year players from around the Midwest. Austin is our 4th player to attend a National Training Center this year after Ben Leas, Jonathon Hernandez, and Andre Wangaard were called into camp earlier this year.
The U14 USSDA Academy team also finished out its action in the Milwaukee Wave Futsal League on Sunday earning a thrilling 4-4 tie with the Bavarian U16 Team which highlighted the progress the team has made during the winter months. The U14’s played up two years in the U16 division to aid with their development, and they finished with a record of 4-3-1 and defeated last year’s State Champions North Shore United’s U16’and SC Waukesha’s U16’s along the way!!
Congratualtions to all of our teams efforts and successes this past weekend and we look forward to seeing everyone this weekend at the FC Wisconsin Winter Invite.
