"Alaina Stanley is one of Leesburg High School's up and coming outstanding defenders. As a freshman, Alaina stood out as a leader&starter on the Junior Varsity team which finished their season 18-1-1. Alaina is a smart player on the field&can read the game well. Her quiet demeanor helped the other players listen to her as she gave instruction on the field. It's my opinion that her success on the field comes from her desire to play the game, the support she gets from her parents, and the training she receives year round from her club and her high school coaches. It's this relationship between club soccer and high school soccer that improves players and is mutually beneficial to all the coaches involved. It's only through hard work and training that a player can advance individually and push their team to get better.
I am very proud of Alaina and what she has accomplished so far. I look forward to working with her for the next three years." Coach Ramos, Girls Head Soccer Coach, Leesburg High School
"All of us at Spirit United — coaches, staff and players are very proud of Alaina Stanley and her soccer achievements. Alaina is good player and she works very hard at what she does. I look forward to coaching her in the future and watching her continue to grow as an outstanding defender." Coach Rodney Rooplal, U15 Girls Blue
Congratulations to Coach Airon & the U11 Boys Gold Team!
Congratulations to Coach Airon Medeiros and his U11 boys on a successful Regions Cup campaign and making it to the final four.
During the semi-finals, the boys battled a very tough team and lost a key player in the first 15 minutes. Despite a hard fought battle, the team was not able to cash in on a couple of opportunities and conceded a late goal to the eventual Regions Cup winner. Down a key player, the team fought another tough opponent in the consolation game, eventually losing 3-1.
Coach Airon told the boys that they should be proud of their accomplishment, making it all the way to the final four out of 30+ teams from central Florida. Congratulations to the ACYS Spirit United U11 Gold (Santos) boys team! Congratulations to the other Final Four teams as well.
Congratulations to Coach Billy & the U14 Girls Blue Team!
The ACYS Spirit United U14 Girls Blue (Fusion) Team had a great run in this year’s Region B Cup Tournament. The girls advanced to the Final 4 and played extremely well in a 2-1 Semifinal loss to the eventual winner Clay County / Black. The team bounced back on Sunday afternoon to play their best game of the tournament in a 3-0 win over the Melbourne Tsunami in the 3rd place match. “The team showed great character and fight on Sunday after a tough loss in a hard fought semi-final match on Saturday. I didn’t expect anything different from this group as they have worked extremely hard and have done everything the coaching staff has asked of them. We took great pride in representing the club this past weekend and we look forward to building on this momentum going forward.” Thank you to all the players and their families, Coach Billy
