U12 Orange “RAGE” through to win the VACAVILLE SHOOTOUT
Hustle and heart set the RAGE U12 Orange team apart from the competition as they went undefeated in the Vacaville tourney. They totaled 19 goals and allowed 0 making it a true championship run. When asked how it felt to win the championship… ”It’s GREAT, but we know that as a team and only as a team can we make a championship dream come true.”
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.
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. Schreiber – RAGE U12
