TC Waza U14 Boys win the 2016 NYS Thruway President's League!
U18 Waza Boys...Champs!
The u18 Boys recently competed in and won the LIFA Open Men's League Indoor Championship. With a regular season record of 6-1, the boys took down perennial contenders, the Netshakers, by a score of 8-2 in the championship game.
4 different players recorded two goal braces: Pierre Clavel and Tristan Cornell-Roberts (Ithaca), Danny Lapp (Trumansburg) and Travis Holman (Spencer Van Ettan). Kevin Klaben (Ithaca) was outstanding in between the pipes and took home game MVP honors.
It was an all Waza semifinal in which the 18's turned back an inspired u16 bunch. Clavel scored two penalty kicks to stave off the brave youngsters for a 2-1 victory.
The win completed a Cup double as the 18's were also champions of the League Cup Tournament. Played over two weekends and 5 games, the boys whitewashed the competition in winning all 5 games.
Other team members included Theo Cowett, Liam McCarthy, Rory Simpson, Jared Brooks and Eric Denbow (all Ithaca).
This was the third winter the boys have competed in the Men's League. They were Division 2 Champions last winter.

11.15.11: The MJW Scholarship Committee is proud to announce the first recipient of the Marika J. Warden Scholarship, Madeline (Maddie) Boerman. Maddie is an 11-year old WAZA sister from Lansing, NY. She was born in Yuma, Arizona, but moved to Lansing shortly afterwards. She has played soccer since she was 4-years old, starting in the Lansing Recreation League and continuing into club soccer with WAZA Flo. She joined the WAZA sisterhood three years ago and has been coached under LaMarr Peters ever since. When asked to explain her love for soccer, she wrote the following:
What I love about soccer is [that] I get to play with lots of my friends and work hard on developing my skills. I love being on a team sport where it takes all of us to be successful. As my grandpa Jerry taught me, "winners are never quitters and quitters are never winners." I love having the challenge to better myself and my team.
Maddie also loves to play the trumpet in her school band and sing in the chorus. Her hobbies include drawing, playing with her dogs and hanging out with her friends. She is an exceptional student, striving to remain on the high honor roll at Lansing Middle School. She volunteers in her community, working at the Lansing Food Pantry at the Lansing Methodist Church. She also enjoys partaking in the youth activities offered through her church, All Saints. During her interview, Maddie's love for her family was clear. She said that she enjoys watching her sister, Morgan, horseback ride and likes spending time with her.
Throughout the scholarship application process, Maddie surprised us with her positive spirit and perseverance when faced with obstacles. Maddie has faced numerous injuries in her soccer career, but continued to support her teammates throughout these challenges. These qualities, among many others, reminded us so strongly of Marika.
Congratulations, Maddie. We're proud to have you represent Marika's legacy.
We also wanted to thank all of the applicants. It was truly a difficult decision. You all hold the qualities to be extraordinary WAZA sisters. We encourage you to apply again in future years. We wish you the best of luck in your WAZA and school seasons. WAZA love.
