Viggiano makes mark at ECNL Texas Event

on .

The ECNL Texas event produced some captivating performances, and naturally the older age groups got into the act. And while there were only a select few U18 sides from outside Texas to attend the event, there was plenty of talent to take in across the board.

With that in mind, this is TopDrawerSoccer.com’s Best XI for U17 and U18 teams that it saw in Fort Worth last weekend.

Marisa Viggiano , Michigan Hawks U17: The Hawks were dealt a savage blow when midfield metronome Zoe Morse was taken off injured in the opening minutes of their opener in Fort Worth and didn’t return. That lead to a 5-0 loss to Dallas Sting and some soul-searching. Nobody picked up the mantle quite like Viggiano, who guided the Hawks to wins over Jennifer Westendorf’s GSA side and Mia Hoen-Beck’s McLean side with four assists in the Hawks’ final two games.

Morse and Koomen featured on TopDrawer's Top 20 players at ECNL Texas

on .

FORT WORTH, Texas; February 21st, 2014 — ECNL Texas is off to a roaring start in Rolling Hills after Friday's day one. The inevitable product of smashing together so many great players in once place is a handful of standouts who grasped the opportunity by the neck.

Zoe Morse, Michigan Hawks U17s: Morse’s influence in the Hawks’ crushing 5-0 loss to the Dallas Sting on Friday was just as evident in her outsize presence on the field as it was in her absence. The Virginia2016 commit was hugely important as a key cog for the Hawks in the holding midfield until she appeared to injure her ankle and was carried off about 20 minutes into the match. She didn’t return, and all five goals came with Morse off the field.

FORT WORTH, Texas; February 22, 2014 — Another day at ECNL Texas is in the books, which means another crop of impressive players stated their case as best of the event’s best. Here’s a look at the best players TopDrawerSoccer.com took in on another gorgeous day in Fort Worth.

Katrina KoomenMichigan Hawks U16s: Looking for a defender with the physical tools to be good right away? You could do much worse than Koomen, who looks about 6-feet even already and has speed to go with her size. Koomen was deployed at left back for the Hawks in their 4-2 loss to the Dallas Sting, but her even play was hardly to blame for most of their miscues. Seems to have the ability to slide over to center back if needed as well.

 

2014 Mayor's Cup International Showcase

on .

The Mayor’s Cup International Showcase held in Las Vegas, NV on Feb 14-17 is over but the memories for the MI Hawks will live on. The hard work, determination, and heart produced a very successful weekend placing the team in the semi-finals (3-1-1) and solidified a Platinum Status in 4th place MI State Rankings for the U17 Hawks Black. The MI Hawks defeated the U17 “Heat FC 97 EN” (State Champions- Nevada), U18 “TURLOCK FC TORNADOS 96G” (California North), U17/U18 “ARSENAL COLORADO ROYAL 96/97” (Colorado), tied U17 “PERTH WALKABOUT FC” (Australia) and lost (1-0) in the semi-finals to the U17 “Whatcom FC Rangers Gold” who went on to win the Showcase.

The group photo with the team from Australia captured not only their smiles but the images of fellow athletes in the true spirit of the game. Shown in the picture (L to R): Allison Viazanko, Madison Hughes, Delaney Bussey, Megan Healy, Kat Kerska, Lindsay Crawley, Maria Pulice, Aliya El-Sabeh, Hope Sheffield, Alex Griffin, Madison Merritt, Cassie Phillips, Chloe Donlin.

As a team of young ladies who came together to represent the U17 Hawks Black miles from home for their first match together, coach Gene Pulice want to thank all of the players and their families for an extraordinary effort that produced a great tournament experience for the MI Hawks Club, the team and all the players.

Michigan Gatorade Soccer Player of the Year

on .

In its 29th year of honoring the nation’s best high school athletes, The Gatorade Company, in collaboration with USA TODAY High School Sports, today announced Alec Lasinski of Skyline High School (and Wolves 97) as its 2013-14 Gatorade Michigan Boys Soccer Player of the Year. Lasinski is the first Gatorade Michigan Boys Soccer Player of the Year to be chosen from Skyline High School.

The award, which recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the field, distinguishes Lasinski as Michigan’s best high school boys soccer player. Now a finalist for the prestigious Gatorade National Boys Soccer Player of the Year award to be announced in May, Lasinski joins an elite alumni association of past state award-winners in 12 sports.

The 5-foot-10 junior forward led the Eagles to a 20-1-5 record and the Division I state championship this past season. Lasinski scored 32 goals and passed for eight assists, including five goals and three assists in Skyline’s seven-game postseason run to the state title. The 2013 Michigan Soccer Coaches Association’s Mr. Soccer, Lasinski was an All-American selection by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. He concluded his junior year with career totals of 50 goals and 27 assists.

Lasinski has maintained a 3.4 GPA in the classroom. He has volunteered locally at a homeless shelter and as a youth soccer coach. He has also donated his time helping to build a playground at a park. “Alec Lasinski is a great player,” said David Saylor, head coach of Grandville High. “He scored big goals in big games and did well all year against a tough schedule. Skyline was beset with some injuries through the middle of the season and that kid never stopped scoring.” Lasinski will begin his senior year of high school this fall.

The Gatorade Player of the Year program annually recognizes one winner in the District of Columbia and each of the 50 states that sanction high school football, girls volleyball, boys and girls cross country, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, baseball, softball, and boys and girls track & field, and awards one National Player of the Year in each sport. The selection process is administered by the Gatorade high school sports leadership team in partnership with USA TODAY High School Sports, which work with top sport-specific experts and a media advisory board of accomplished, veteran prep sports journalists to determine the state winners in each sport.

Lasinski joins recent Gatorade Michigan Boys Soccer Players of the Year Dewey Lewis (2012-13, Rockford High School), Zach Carroll (2011–12, Grand Blanc High School),  Dzenan Catic (2010–11, East Kentwood High School), Soony Saad,2009-10, (Dearborn High School),  Kevin Cope (2008–09, Salem), and Casey Townsend (2007-08 & 2006-2007, Traverse City West) among the state’s list of former award winners.
