WSA 01 BOYS WHITE SHARKS OPL CHAMPIONS!
First Season Statewide League Champions!
The WSA 01 Boys White Sharks team competed in one of Oklahoma’s most hotly contested leagues this past Fall season. And while they didn’t stand near the top of the tables until the very end, they were able to edge out Blitz United 01 Navy by one point in the final standings to grab an auspicious League Championship in their first season of competitive soccer!
WSA 01 Boys White Sharks, formerly Sharks 01, are not new to winning championship trophies. The team, under the direction of staff, Adam Vasquez and Rey Bustos, has become one of Oklahoma’s highest achieving young teams. The team regularly claimed tournament championships during it’s "academy" days playing "up" in age division. This year the team has opened it’s first season in league play by topping the best in Oklahoma. "It was a tough race and we were able to come through at the end," reported Coach Vasquez, describing a league race that literally came down to the final weekend of the season.
WSA 01 Boys White Sharks claimed 7 wins, 3 draws, and suffered only 2 defeats, in the 12 match Fall season. To claim the championship required WSA to get wins on their final weekend of play, which they were able to do by defeating Blitz Red and FC Bartlesville Navy. The squad amassed a total of 36 goals for and surrendered 25. Their record produced 24 total points, one clear of OFC and Blitz Navy’s 23 points.
The team has already begun preparing itself for the tough Spring OPL season. The team is currently competing in the West Side Futsal winter training league, and recently finished runners-up in the Winterfest Indoor tournament at SoccerCity. They are preparing for a travel torunament to Kansas City in February.
WSA 01 White Sharks are one of the associated members of the "Sharks" academy and training program that is under the direction of Adam Vasquez. Sharks and WSA have aligned rescources cooperatively the past two years and the relationship appears to be paying dividends. "Sharks certainly produces top quality players, but more important we share a similar philosophy in our approach to youth soccer. We are thrilled to have the Sharks coaches, parents, and players a part of our family," reports WSA Director of Coaching, Roger Bush.
Congratulations again to the WSA 01 White Sharks team for a great season and the OPL Division I Championship! And good luck to the team headed into the Winter preseason and Spring Season!
