Along with victories in the Manchester Cup and Pegasus Cup, the team was a finalist in the Notts Forest Memorial Day and Rockstar Cup tournaments in 2011.
In 2012, the team will be moving to the SCDL as it seeks tougher challenges in the soccer world. The planned tournament schedule for 2012 includes the State Cup Presidents division, two college showcases, the Mustangs tournament in Danville as well as a return to one of San Diego’s premier tournaments, the Pegasus Cup.
These girls have worked hard for their success with commitment, dedication, and sacrifice as the key ingredients.
