The U10 girls clinched their Grand Valley Soccer Association (GVSA) Division 2 title, finishing the season 6-1-1.  This is their 2nd consecutive division title. After winning the Division 3 fall title with a record of 7-1, the Tri-Hawks were moved up to Division 2 this spring season.

This title came down to the final game. Coming into the last weekend, with two games left, the Tri-Hawks were sitting in 3rd place. The top two teams had finished their season and the Tri-Hawks just had to win their final two games to take the title.

On Saturday, they faced a relentless USA WISE team from Zeeland. Even though their opponents were winless on the season and only had one player on the bench to sub in, they put up a great effort. The Tri-Hawks won 2-1, moving into 2nd place. With TC Strikers sitting at 5-0-3 with 18 points, the Tri-Hawks were 5-1-1 with 16 points.  The Tri-Hawks 1 loss and 1 tie were at the hands of the first place TC Strikers team.  A win in their final game of the season would give them 19 points and the title.

The girls played some of their best soccer of the season. Great passing and communication on the field, as well as aggressive pressure on their opponents, got them a 3-0 shutout win and the title. The girls scored 17 goals in 8 games, and only gave up 11 goals on the season.
