What a fantastic weekend of soccer and homeschool fellowship in Ft. Wayne!  Despite a rainy start, spirits were high with our players and fans.  Both the Boys and Girls teams came ready with their best efforts, resulting in some great successes...

Our young Boys Division 2 team lost its first match with Ft. Wayne Fusion, but turned things around to secure their first win of the season defeating Kokomo Eagles 3-0.  And the crowd went wild!!!  They followed up with a hard-fought 2-1 win against the Indy Warriors, securing an overall 5th place finish.  We're so proud of these fine young men!

The Lady 'Blazers defeated #3 seed Genesis United 2-1, and followed up with another win (1-0) against #2 seed Southside Thunder to advance to the CHAMPIONSHIP game, where they faced #1 seed Ft. Wayne Fusion.  They fought valiantly and held the Fusion to only 1 goal in the first half, finishing 2nd in the state.  This great group of young ladies certainly proved that they deserved to be in the Championship game.

In addition, two of our players were selected for the 2017 IHSA All-State Team:  Claire Soendlin and Elianna Grunden

Congratulations!!  And thank you for your leadership and example.

Special thanks to parents and families for helping to make this weekend happen!  Your behind-the-scenes support helped create a great experience, enabled some wonderful friendships to develop, and made our Trailblazer soccer family even stronger.
