The 97 NC Alliance Girls were crowned champions of the U16 Blue Bracket at the 2013 Disney Soccer Showcase.
Lead by coach Erik Steuck, the 97s finished pool play with a 3-0-0 record shutting out all 3 opponents. That shutout streak stayed in tact in the Finals after some great saves from GK Rachel Howard as the 97s defeated FC Alliance (TN) 1-0 to notch the championship behind the game winner from Nicole DeBruyne. This is the 2nd consecutive year the 97 Alliance Girls have reached the Disney Showcase Finals after a runner-up bid in 2012.
In pool play the 97s defeated ODFC Revolution (VA) 2-0, Roanoke Elite (VA) 2-0 and Jersey United 3-0.
Former FVAA player, Kristina Sedivy from the '99 NC Alliance Girls will participate with the '00 Region 3 ODP Team April 10-13, 2014 on the campus of NC State . The team will train for 2 days and then play friendlies vs the '99 VA ODP Team and the '99 NC ODP Team to conclude the 4 day mini-camp. Kristina was one of four NC players selected to the 18 person roster. Congrats to Kristina and best of luck!
