In the North Carolina Classic Soccer League, claiming the top spot in your division is no easy feat - and that's exactly what Macon County's U15 Storm have done this season. After seven games against larger club teams and tough regional rivals from Charlotte, the Storm occupy first place in the Second West Division for under-15 teams, and are continuing a healthy streak of ten games without a loss.
The top ranking is another first for Macon County soccer. Last year the Storm helped put Macon County soccer on the map when they won the FCCA First Strike tournament at Charlotte. The team is poised to hold onto the firstplace ranking with a strong finish in the last three games of the regular season.
All the extra training, hard work, and travel have paid off for the Storm, and coach Joel Scott is grateful that his team is receiving recognition.
"This team has been working hard together, getting better and better every year," Scott said. "I would like nothing more than to see them succeed and make it to the next level, then, succeed again."
