The DMCV Sharks girls 16 Elite soccer team will travel to the National Championships in Kansas on July 21.  This team is one of eight U16 teams to qualify to play for the coveted 2013 US Youth Soccer National Champion title, the most prestigious title in the country.  They have had much success this spring being crowned National League Division Champions in Las Vegas and earning the spot to Nationals; Far West Regional League Champions and earning the spot to Far West Regional’s in Hawaii and finally Cal South National Cup Champions in Rancho Capistrano.

The team, made up of girls from all over San Diego County, Temecula and Orange Co., practices two- three times a week under Coach Felicia Kappes, director of The College Program.  She has been coaching most of this team for the past four years, really giving the girls the guidance and confidence to go out and perform at this high level of competition and succeed.

A team goal was to get to the Far West Regional finals in Hawaii. The Shark team played through to the finals where they met Legends FC, defending National Champions.  These two last played in May at the So Cal National Cup championship game with Sharks winning 2-0 so both teams came to win the Regional  title.  The Sharks team never gave up pressuring the goal until the final whistle.  Legends won 2-1.  Both teams will be representing Cal South at the National Championships July 21-28 in Overland Park in Kansas.   Some of the teams they will be facing are NSA Jaguars (IL); Louisiana Fire Navy (LA); Toms River FC (NJ); Eclipse Elite (Il); Kings Hammer Academy (OH-S).

Please send your congratulations and best wishes to the girls on its Facebook page DMCV Sharks.
