A full year of year of training has culminated in weeks of state championship play. Countless hours of conditioning - foot skills, cardio, strengthening, stamina. Mental focus and fortitude. The ability to BELIEVE that no opponent - whether larger in size or in reputation, will beat you.
The hopes and skills of thousands of youth soccer players took to the windy, lush green fields of the Bernalillo soccer complex as the facility played host again to this year's state club soccer championships. There were few blowout championship games. And while soccer can at times be a subjective sport, there were a lot of good plays and good sportsmanship.
ABQ Sports congratulations all of this year's State Cup Champions and will follow their progress at Regionals, being held in New Mexico later this month.
We are always looking for good stories, projects, photos & videos. If you have something to share let us know. We'll give you credit for the submission (of course) and what is cooler than showing all your gang that you have a story on ABQ Sports Magazine?
