CAL SOUTH CAPTURES 8 OF 10 US YOUTH SOCCER REGION IV PRESIDENTS CUP TITLES
June 15, 2009
Championship teams now head to 2009 Presidents Cup National Championships in Raleigh, NC in July
Tri-Cities, WA - Teams from Cal South captured eight of the ten championships this weekend at the inaugural US Youth Soccer Region IV Presidents Cup, which concluded this weekend in the Tri-Cities area (Kennewick, Pasco and Richland) of the state of Washington. Fourteen Cal South teams -- ten State Cup champions and four wild card teams -- traveled to Washington last week to take part in the regional tournament, for which Cal South provided subsidies of $5000 per team to help with travel expenses. The championship teams will now head to Raleigh, North Carolina in July for the 2009 US Youth Soccer Presidents Cup National Championships.
Proving just how dominant Cal South was at the event, twelve of the fourteen Cal South teams reached the finals matches in their respective age groups, with the BU13, GU13 and GU15 finals featuring face-offs between opposing Cal South clubs. The GU17 bracket, which featured the other two Cal South teams, was the only one not decided with a championship final. The bracket was won by CFC United, who won all four of their matches en route to their title.
