After competing in Las Vegas over Thanksgiving and then again in December’s regional event in Redwood City, San Juan Lightning 99 Blue was awarded the Coppa Cup as the Western College Development Association U14 Boy’s Tournament Champions.

The WCDA is a premier youth soccer program focused on established, elite clubs delivering consistent, high-quality competition and college readiness services for its members. Thirty youth soccer clubs across the western United States have formed the Western College Development Association

Over the course of the two events, Lightning 99 Blue won five matches, tied one and lost one while producing an impressive goal differential of 24-6. The last match for the championship ended in an exciting draw against the second-ranked team in the nation, yet Lightning 99 Blue earned the championship based on a tie breaker.

Four members of this team — Clayton Smith, Zach Hayden, Mike Petri and Nic Rasmussen — live in El Dorado Hills and have been playing together since 2009 when they competed on El Dorado Hills U-9 Select team.
