"These girls along with their teammates worked very hard over the past few months in preparing for the tournament and the chance to win a State Cup Championship," said IPSC Coach Kenrick Ramirez. "Their dedication, commitment and desire for improvement helped them win the championship."
Ramirez, has coached three consecutive State Cup Championship teams.
The Indiana State Cup is part of US Youth Soccer's National Championship tournament. IPSC will play in the Region II Championships in Sioux City, S.D., from June 23-28.
The top teams from 14 states will participate in the Midwest Regional championships.
IPSC is recognized as one of the top soccer clubs in Indiana and fields travel teams (Boys and Girls U10-U19) that participate in the Indiana State League and Midwest Regional League, as well as various programs (Boys and Girls U8-U10) for younger kids.
"This State Cup Championship was especially challenging from a team perspective because many of these kids only began playing together as a team early last winter. We are proud of this achievement and excited about the future and continued development of this group of girls. We are always interested, no matter what their ages, in helping kids develop their soccer skills," Ramirez said.
