WV 1997 Boys Make WV ODP History

WV ODP 1997 Boys

The West Virginia Soccer Association 1997 Boys Olympic Development Program team has advanced to the semifinals of the U.S. Youth Soccer Region I ODP championships, marking the first time a West Virginia boys team has advanced to this round of competition in state history.

The team, coached by Bob Gray of the Marshall men's soccer team, will face Vermont on June 21 in Delaware. The winner will face either New Jersey or Eastern Pennsylvania on June 22 in the championship match.

This past weekend at Rider University in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, the 1997s secured wins over New York West (1-0) and Virginia (1-0) as well as a scoreless draw with New York East to win the table.

In 2011, the WVSA 1996 Girls ODP team advanced to the semifinals for the first time in state history.
