RAGE U11 Orange Team Wins the Santa Cruze Breakers Cup

u11orange
Congratulations to the Pleasanton RAGE U11 Orange team on winning the 2015 Santa Cruz Breakers Cup – Premier Division. 
The team, coached by Darin Preszler, went undefeated to win the championship.  Together with her tremendous defenders, goalkeeper Elizabeth Fineberg did not allow a single goal in four games.  On the offensive side of the field, Mia Corpuz, Emma Fuller, Alura Hagan Kaitlin Lemus, Alana Owens, Shiranika Rajsekar, and Kiana Tahmassebi were tenacious in their possession of the ball, passing and communication.  The defenders, Casey Currie, Ava Hofstede, Paige Morgan, Kelly Queen, and Elizabeth Williams, were relentless in keeping the ball on the opponents’ side of the field and pressuring the other team to turn the ball over. In pool play, RAGE outscored their opponents 7-0 with goals by Emma Fuller, Alura Hagan, Alana Owens, and Kiana Tahmassebi. The team won the championship game 1-0 with seamless defense, and a second half goal by Emma Fuller.  Winning the tournament was a tremendous team effort, and all the girls were instrumental in winning the trophy.

RAGE U9 Orange

u9-orange
Congratulations to the Pleasanton RAGE u9 Orange on winning the 2015 Pleasanton Rage Showcase.  The team, coached by Axel Thibodeau, went undefeated (4-0) to win the championship.  Following the Spring season where the girls played up at u10, this was their first time playing at their age group – and they didn’t disappoint.  They beat Santa Rosa, Clovis, and Mustang Mercury before heading into the championship game against Mustang’s #1 team, Xplosion.  
 
Led offensively by Giana Owens, Giana Guerrero, Riley Horn and Aishwarya Anburaja – the girls went ahead early with two quick goals.  Alden Hofstede, Ava Haviley and Aleka Mandava held down the midfield; while Abby Mai, Eva Torrico, Presley Cash and Reese Gotchall stellar defense limited Mustang’s scoring opportunities.  At full time the game was 3-1, Orange on top and riding momentum into the Fall season.

U12 Rage Player wins Northern California 1/2 Mile Track Championship

shriber

The other day I was in the Pacific Association Championship track meet in Sacramento running the half mile. It was my second competitive track meet and my first competitive meet in the half mile.   There were over 70 other runners who were seasoned track competitors.  I was in the last and fastest heat based on my being a fast runner and having a fast 400 time.  When the gun went off I decided to hang back like my coach said.  I stayed near the back of the pack for the first lap and a half..  Then I was feeling good so decided to turn on my sprinting.  I caught at least five girls.  Then I came up on the one girl who everyone knows for winning so many medals.  I passed her then on the final 100 meters was able to catch the last girl and win gold!  My current time of 2:29 puts me in the top 10-15 nationwide.  If all goes well I am going to the Junior Olympics in Florida in late July.  – Lizzy.
