Becoming the first team in program history to win a Region II Championship, head coach Oliver Condell explains that the journey to the regional title was not easy. Losing the first game of the regional tournament, Team Challenger had to work beyond its comfort level to recover from the early loss.
Coming up short the past four years, Team Challenger buckled down and punched its first National Championship Tournament ticket. Concluding the initial loss of the regional tournament, Team Challenger had a perfect record amongst its final four competitors. Winning in true championship style, Team Challenger was reigned Region II Champions after overcoming The Chicago Fire Juniors in penalty kicks.
Based out of Medina, Ohio, Team Challenger is excited to be apart of the pinnacle of youth club soccer in the United States and is excited to be equipped with the right tools to be successful. UN1TUS has been Team Challenger’s uniform provider for the past three years and attributes its uniforms to playing a massive role for the organization. “UN1TUS keeps our entire club looking sharp and apart from the rest,” said Condell.
The expectations going into nationals are to compete for each other, sacrifice for each other and encourage each other, said head Coach Oliver, Condell.
Congratulations Team Challenger FC on the regional title and good luck at the National Championship.
