Hard work and dedication are paying off for the Toledo Celtics Soccer Club. Led by Coach Kirk Brazeau, the team has won two State Cup Championships at the U15 and U16 boys age groups. Of the 8 teams they entered, 5 of them worked their way to the playoffs. Their U15 team achieved a record of 18-0-1, and their U16 team had a record of 15-3-3. Both teams moved on to the Region II Soccer Championships in Indianapolis. “Although all of our players are great and amazing additions to our team, I want to recognize some important members of our team. Taylor Miles, who is the captain of the U16 team, is a great leader and leads by example,” said Brazeau. ”Majd Awad, from Toledo St. Francis in the U16 team, Josh Kidder from Archbold in U15, and Stenter Straka, also from St. Francis and in the U15 team, are all great overall players. Scout Zibbel from St. Johns really came into his own on the field, and Aaron Swerlein from St. Francis really switched up his game and grew this year.” The U15 team is also going to the National Championships, to face off against the top 16 teams in the country.
