On Saturday (Nov. 5th), Burien’s St. Francis of Assisi 6th grade girls took home the CYO Championship Trophy, defeating 18 greater Seattle CYO schools!

“These girls have played together since 3rd grade and have been undefeated for four years!” reads an email from Debbie Cutler.

Here’s another quote from Coach Craig Ueland:

“It isn’t easy to be successful. First, you need to decide you want to excel. Then it helps if you can set a lofty, but hopefully achievable goal. I know many of you set the goal of winning the CYO soccer championship when you were in 3rd grade. Once the goal is set, you need strive to achieve it, with all of the physical and mental challenges along the way. It is easy to give up, but with the goal in mind, you persevere. Many of the strongest teams slip up along the way, often even at the final hurdle of the championship game. Not this team. Not this group of girls, coaches, and families. Good things can take a long time to achieve, but it is remarkable what can be accomplished when you dream and then set out to achieve that dream with all your heart and skill.”
