The WSA 97 boys, coached by Wes Branstetter, recently claimed the Green Country Soccer Association "A" division league championship with an unbeaten mark through 10 games. The team will not only grab a league championship trophy, but the squad will get a true test in Spring 2010 upon promotion to the Oklahoma Premiere League.
WSA 97 boys, the 2009 Fall GCSA League Champions entered the 2009 season under the leadership of Branstetter and staff coaches Chris Taylor and Richard Shaughnessy. The team, which included many new additions this offseason, got off to an auspicious debut by reaching the semifinals of the BASC Labor Day tourney in September.
When the time came to focus on league play the boys seemed up for the challenge, as they moved rather convincingly through the early stages of league play. At critical moments in the season the team was able to answer the call and Coach Branstetter credited much of the success to a disciplined team defending approach. However, the coaches all agree there is much work in front of the team as they head into the 2010 campaign.
Well done and congratulations WSA 97 boys!
