Placer United players and parents packed up their cars and vans and traveled en mass to the Bay Area over the weekend for one of the the biggest events of the year, the Northern California Spring College Showcase. The tournament, which draws teams from all over California and other states, as well as plenty of college coaches, was played out in the warmest weather of the year so far.
While the coaches and parents applied plenty of sunscreen in 75+ degree weather, our boys and girls dazzled and sizzled on the field dressed appropriately in their sunshine yellow kits.
The nine Placer United boys and girls teams ranging in ages from U14 to U18 played 36 games and scored a total of 58 goals as they brought home plenty of silverware for the already crowded Tinker trophy room.
Three Placer United teams were crowned champions of the event. A BIG congratulations to the U16 99 Boys Gold, the U16 99 Girls Black, and the U14 01 Girls Black.
We want to give a massive shout out to our U15 Boys 00 Black team. The boys had a great weekend and finished in second place in their division after an epic comeback performance and a goal-of-the-year from Graham Bart in their semi-final game which took the team to the final.
Well done to the U15 00 Boys and U17 Boys 98 Gold who finished in 3rd and 5th in their divisions, as well as all the other Placer United teams that competed in and around the Bay Area.
It was great to see the Yellow Submarine out in force and doing so well.
