2001 girls, Giulia Giovinazzi 2002 girls, and Keyosha Donkor 2002 girls, on

WHITBY IROQUOIS OPDL U15 GIRLS JEFFERSON CUP FINALISTS!!!
The Whitby Iroquois OPDL U15 Girls travelled to Richmond, Virginia March 24th-26th to compete in one of the largest university and college soccer showcases in North America. The girls impressed the Americans with wins over Florida Clearwater Chargers Select 3-1, New York's ISA MIA 00 NPL 2-0 (ranked 31st in the nation, won the Disney Showcase and had not lost in 2 years), and New Jersey's Brick Township SA Fury 5-1. The girls played a tough, physical team from Ohio South FOSC Red Rage in the final, scoring first only to see the Ohio team fight back with 2 goals of their own for the championship. The girls team also had the support of four players from our 2002 OPDL team, thus some players were matching up with girls almost two years older. Coach Steve Airlie and Technical Director David Thorburn would like to congratulate the girls for a tremendous achievement putting Whitby Iroquois S.C. on the map. Team members are Lauryn Arruda, Missy Balachorek, Mackenzie Campbell, Sofia Conforti, Megan Couthino, Venessa Dixon, Renee Falkner, Giulia Giovinazzi,Hannah Harkin, Megan LaHay, Cierra Meredith, Nailah Rowe, Olivia Sacuevo, Alex Stewart, Trystan Thompson-Cotterell, Kelsey Wiliams and Kaelin Wright.
