Fort Wayne Fever teams make history

Statement as issued Monday:

Fort Wayne, June 11, 2012: For the first time in Fort Wayne history, all Fever teams (8) who qualified for the State Finals weekend, advanced to the State Championship games in their respective age groups. No other club in the history of Fort Wayne Soccer has accomplished this objective.

The Fever qualified teams in the U11 Boys (President’s Cup), U12 Boys (President’s Cup), U15 Boys, U16 Boys, U17 Boys, U18 Boys, U19 Boys and U17 Girls divisions in the State Championship game. Four teams (U12B, U17B, U18B, U19B) out of the 8 were crowned State Champions, which is the only time in recent history of Fort Wayne Soccer that this has occurred. The U18 boys and the U12 boys are back to back Champions (2011& 2012). The U11 boys were state runners up losing a close game to Fishers FC. The 15 boys were state runners up losing a controversial game to Dynamo FC with a man down. The U16 boys were state runners up losing to last years state champions Carmel United. The U17 Girls were state runners up losing a very close game to Zionsville after beating last years state champion Fort Wayne Sports club 3 to 1in the semi-finals. Three teams (U17 Boys, U18 Boys, & U19 Boys) will advance to the Regional Championships in Saginaw, Michigan on June 23-27, 2012 compete for a chance to advance to the National Finals.

"These accomplishments are evidence of the hard work and dedication of the players and coaches. As a club we operate under a singular philosophy of providing a professional developmental platform to help kids reach their soccer potential at all levels. Making history at the youth level has not only put our club on the map as the best in the city, but has also built our reputation as a powerhouse in the region. The Fever families and players have chosen the right club at the right time to help provide the right soccer future. We are extremely proud of what our players have worked so hard to achieve" - Director of Coaching, Bobby Poursanidis.

The fever will be holding tryouts the 2012-2013 season this week at Hefner Fields. Please visit the website at for more information.
