PHOENIX, Arizona (January 18, 2011) - Once again showing the impressive depth of the Southern California talent pool, Cal South ODP collected six of the eight trophies for which they were competing at the US Youth Soccer Region IV ODP Championships in January. Eight teams from Cal South had traveled to Phoenix, Arizona to compete in the tournament, which was being held from January 15-18, to make an attempt to duplicate their 8 for 8 titles feat in Las Vegas in 2008.

Cal South ODP teams had a perfect record through the first three days of preliminary matches, going a collective 29-0-0. All eight trophies were still in sight heading into the semi-finals round on the afternoon on Monday, January 17, but a loss by the Girls '96 side left Cal South up for seven going into the last day. Tuesday's finals action started off with a close Cal South Boys '95 loss to Washington (2-1), but then Cal South wrapped things up for good. Their five remaining finals matches were all shutouts.

The only bracket not decided by a championship final - the Boys '94 group - was handily won by Cal South in their last match by taking out Arizona 7-3, giving the team a perfect total of 15 points (5-0-0) for the event. The Cal South Boys '94 team were ODP national champions last year and can now attempt to repeat that success at the 2011 US Youth Soccer ODP Championships, also to be held in Phoenix, Arizona from March 4-6.

Cal South's ongoing success at the ODP Regionals and the subsequent ODP National Championships is astounding by nearly any measure. Cal South ODP has now won 39 of a possible 48 regional championships for which it has competed in the last five years (81%). At the national level, Cal South ODP has won 17 out of 44 championships (38%) since the competition was established in 2000.
