The Carlsbad Elite GU17 team finished in 3rd place in the teams first ever appearance in the National Championships.  Through the entire National League qualifying and the competition in Maryland, the GU17 girls were the ONLY team to not lose a single match.  It took double-overtime for the eventual champions Del Mar Sharks to break through and beat Carlsbad in the Semi-final match-up 1-0.  While the team put everything on the line to win it all, coming home with a 3rd place medal turned out to be a very satisfying accomplishment. Congratulations Elite!
