Greenville Soccer Team Getting Ready For National Competition

Summer vacation doesn't necessarily mean relaxation time for all eastern Carolina teens, especially when you've got a title to win.

The 94-Greenville Stars is a local girls soccer team that's going to the Nationals in Raleigh next week.

These girls have already won North Carolina's President's Cup and the Regional Three-Cup. Now they're looking to make a little local history.

The team is the first Pitt-Greenville Soccer Association team to advance to the national finals. It includes players from Wilson, Washington and Greenville.

Coach Darren Dawson says they practice constantly, have a whole lot of determination and set their goals high. "Hopefully we'll be able to finish the job and come back to Greenville with a national cup."

The tournament kicks of Friday, July 17th as the Greenville Stars face a team from Washington State at WRAL's soccer complex in Raleigh.

    You girls aquitted yourselves very well. I was impressed by the quality of soccer in the tournament, regardless of the competition. You still have to beat a lot of teams to get to the Nationals. Great job Greenville and maybe we meet again.

    Great accomplishment for these girls. However, do not mistake this tournament for the true US Youth Soccer National Championship Series which takes place in MA 7/22-7/26. This group of girls will get a real test next year when they move into the NC Premier Division.
