1st Annual Junior Stangs Camp a HUGE Success!

Two weeks ago, our program hosted our very first Junior Stangs Soccer Camp for boys, and without a doubt it was a fantastic success!

We had just about 30 boys (grades 3-9) from around the Redmond community join us at the RHS field for three days of drills, training, games, and fun! The campers had smiles on their faces, played some impressive soccer, and successfully followed one of the RHS Boys Soccer Program’s goals: improve every day.

Us Redmond coaches, players, and parents would like to formally thank our campers. Your hard work, enthusiasm, and positive spirit helped make the camp one to remember! We hope you had SO much fun, and are excited to see you again soon!

The camp was even featured in the Redmond Reporter! Check it out:http://www.redmond-reporter.com/sports/soccer-is-a-fun-time-soccer-is-a-lifestyle/

For those interested, there will be a few ways to continue being involved with the RHS Boys Soccer Program:

  1. Each camper and their family will receive a postcard as we get closer to the 2019 Spring season inviting them to join us at our games. We’d love to have you join us! Without a doubt, you son will also enjoy cheering on his camp coaches as they compete on the field.
  2. Campers can be ball boys for the Redmond games! There will also be opportunities for our former campers to be ball boys for our games. This is a ton of fun for the boys, as they get to hang out on the track beside the field, experience the action up close, and be a valuable part of the team!
  3. Join us at camp again next year! There will be another Junior Stangs Soccer Camp next summer (dates forthcoming). Please check this website during the Spring for more information. We’d love to have your son join us once again!

Below are some pictures of our wonderful campers and their team’s coaches. Thanks again for making it such a fun camp:

The Stangs Win Third Place in the State Championship!!!

For the first time in Redmond High School history, the soccer team finished 3rd place at the State Tournament!

After suffering a tough loss to Roosevelt in their Friday semi-final match, the Stangs battled back on Saturday to defeat Lakeside 4-3 for the 3rd place trophy.

This weekend has been a culmination of months of tremendous effort, grit, and self-belief. From off-season conditioning sessions in cold December days, to practice sessions in the heat of late Spring, to three intense battles against the Mercer Island Islanders, to shocking results against some of the best teams in the entire State, this team has risen to every challenge set before them. Everyone around the league and the state undervalued this team, but dang did we prove them wrong!

Congratulations to all the boys on an excellent, memorable, and historic season! What a way to finish!

Oh and just for those that are interested in numbers… our Stangs finished 3rd out of 65 3A teams in Washington! That is truly incredible!

Announcing your 2018 KingCo Champions, the Redmond Mustangs!

Stangs- Varsity pic- kingco championship

In what can only be described as a battle, Redmond prevailed over Mercer Island in the KingCo Championship game last night! The game finished regular and extra time goalless, with neither team conceding. Our beloved Stangs rose to the occasion during the PK Shootout. Angel Hernandez, Kojo Dadzie, Ethan Cain, and Reece Wyrick all stepped up and finished their shots with composure. Meanwhile, the Man of the Match Ricardo Escalante managed to stop two of the Islanders’ shots, leading to a 4-2 Victory! 

With last night’s win, the Redmond Mustangs have earned the program their 1st KingCo Championship in 11 years! What a testament to the hard work, resilience, and heart these young men showed all season long. 

Thanks to all the family, friends, and other supporters who came out last night to root the team on! What an amazing, spirited night! The team could not have won without your help!

The Stangs will host their 1st round game in the 3A State Tournament early next week. More details to come.

C-Team 2018

C-Team Finishes their Season with an Impressive 1-1 Performance Against Eastlake!

C-Team ties undefeated Eastlake 1-1

The C-Stangs saved their best game for last.  Eastlake gets up early after a mix-up inside the 18 leaves an unmarked Eastlake forward open for an easy goal.  However, as the game went on so did the teams confidence which wasn’t easy as they were playing a tough Eastlake team who was previously unbeaten (or tied).  Then, mid-way through the second half, # 9 Garrett Price makes a long run to the end line and cuts the ball into the 6 yard box to find #3 Ian Loo who slams the ball into the back of the net.  Luke Johnson makes a few (too many) spectacular saves to earn a clean sheet in the second half and the game ends in a 1-1 tie.  Although unofficial, Coach Antonio was reportedly seen skipping in the parking lot, unable to control how proud he was of his team’s effort.
