The San Diego Surf Academy Select BU13 has done it again. After missing their back-to-back National Cup championship a couple of weeks ago, the team traveled to Dallas to compete in the prestigious Dallas Cup Tournament. Being crowned Dallas Cup Champion is a great achievement for any team competing, since teams come from all over the world. This year, it was Cal South vs. Cal South in the finals of the U13 bracket, as San Diego Surf took on local, longtime rival Golden State Academy for the honor of being Dallas Cup Champion. The match ended with a 3-1 score, with Surf Academy Select earning the bragging rights. This win solidifies this squad as one of the best U13 lineups in the country. This is the first team in the history of San Diego Surf Soccer club to win this prestigious tournament. Most of these players will be joining the USS Development Academy program in the coming season. Congratulations to the team and coach Steve Hill for ending the season in such high note.
