The Caldwell-West Caldwell (CWC) Soccer Club Girls U14 Middies team had much to celebrate this fall.
In addition to commemorating Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, the team went undefeated in the Flight 2 Morris Youth County Soccer Association (MYCSA) and became Flight 2 champions.
The team—coached by Mary Jo Buoye, Wayne Costigan and UK Elite Trainer Andy Ralphs—had their season delayed by two weeks due to Hurricane Sandy. But they finally secured their last victory and flight championship on Nov. 14.
After the victory, Buoye commented, "Job well done this season! Wayne (Costigan) and I can't express how proud we are of all the girls, and how they came together to be flight champions."
The team also received praise from CWC Soccer Club President Eddie Hreniuk, who, along with parents and friends, watched the Middies clinch the championship in their last game at the Kiwanis Oval.
"What a hard fought victory played on a brutally cold night! For your team to go undefeated is something to be truly proud of!" Hreniuk exclaimed.
This spring will be the final season for the girls to play together. They wlll be entering high school next year.
