HIGH SCHOOL BOYS KICK OFF
SPRING CUP SEASON

With the high school boys soccer spring season almost upon us, boys teams aged U15-U19 were the first to hoist the trophies at the 2012 Washington Youth Soccer Challenge Cup and US Youth Soccer Washington State Championships in February at the Starfire Sports Campus in Tukwila.

While boys and girls players in the other age groups will begin their own Washington Youth Soccer State Cup competition later this month, the high school-aged boys have been battling snow and rain on fields statewide since January in search of a coveted State Cup title and a berth at the Regional Championships later this year.

Over 75 boys teams kicked off amid the January snows in the Challenge Cup, designed to enhance the accomplishments and skill levels of competitive Under 11 through Under 19 players. The US Youth Soccer Washington State Championships, meanwhile — the state’s highest-level competitive tournament — gathered thousands of the most elite players in the state onto fields across Washington this spring, with subsequent rounds of competition whittling the fields in both tournaments down to the 32 total squads who came to Starfire Sports Campus in February for the semi-final and final rounds.

Of course, in addition to the honor of being declared State Cup Champions — listed below — each winning team will also advance to regional competition later this year, with Challenge Cup winners (with the exception of the Boys U19 team) advancing to the 2012 Region IV Presidents Cup in Arvada, Colo, June 12-17, and State Championships winners moving on to the 2012 US Youth Soccer Far West Regionals in Phoenix, June 18-24.

A complete list of winners and finalists are included below. To see all the results from this year’s State Cups, as well as video recaps, visit the State Cups page at WashingtonYouthSoccer.org! And don’t forget to follow our outstanding teams at Regionals in June!
