“We’re going to Disneyland!”
Next year, they’re headed to the US Soccer Development Academy. The girls of Mike Whittaker’s Albion SC 2006 team have one last summer under the US Youth Soccer (USYS) umbrella, and they’ve just extended their USYS season by winning the Cal South National Cup. The Albion girls battled San Diego Surf in the championship game and came out on top, 4-1. To celebrate the big win, before they begin preparing for Far West Regionals in Boise, the girls went to Disneyland for a day of fun.
The Albion 2006 team played in the DPL (Development Players League) this last season before moving to the DA. The core of the team has been together for about four years. Whittaker says, “The team has fantastic chemistry and gets better every time they set foot on the field.”
Congratulations to Albion from all of us at SoccerNation, and best of luck in Boise this summer!
