FIERCE 08G NL Win 2024 State Cup

On April 27th, FIERCE's 08G NL team initiated its month-long journey to eventually win the 2024 State Cup. The competition began with a 5 team group of Western District teams including San Antonio, Georgetown, and Austin competitors.

In group play, 08G NL scored 8 goals and came away with 3 shutouts, securing their place in the state finals. The finals were played as a round-robin tournament between the top two teams of each group. FIERCE kicked off the round-robin finals on May 25th with a 1-1 tie against Inwood SC ID The ACDMY 08G NLFC. Day two thrilled with a high-scoring match against HTX GA2 08 S, with FIERCE coming out on top 6-3. On the final day of competition, FIERCE competed against Lonestar's 08G FDL White team with a decisive 2-0 victory. After three consecutive days of soccer against the top teams in South TX, FIERCE came away undefeated and earned the title of 2024 State Cup Champions!

Regarding their State Cup run, Executive Director and Head Coach Nick Marquez had the following to say:

We couldn't be more proud of these amazing young women for their historic accomplishment. The core of this roster have been working towards these successes together for nearly a decade and earning this berth to the Southern Regional Championships is just the tip of the iceberg of what they'll collectively achieve. Most have aspirations of playing collegiately and that's very much within their grasp with continued commitment to the FIERCE Way and the process we preach. We can't wait for these girls to crush it in Tampa, rep our WPSL team this summer, and continue rocking it in roles such as FIERCE Junior Coaches, referees, UIL stars, and academic leaders.

With 08G NL's State Cup win, they received a berth to USYS Regionals in Tampa. In total, this makes 3 FIERCE teams that qualified for Regionals. The event will begin June 21st and conclude June 27th, with the age group winner advancing to the USYS National Championships in Orlando. Congratulations to FIERCE's 08G NL team!
