Local soccer club recruiting for players
The Sierra Mountain Soccer Club (SMSC) ended the spring 2008 season with great results from all the club’s teams.
Topping off the season were the U15 boys Twisters, who won the Nevada State Cup by beating out several Las Vegas teams. The Twisters went on to compete in the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series in Hawaii, where they faced tough competition against teams from Southern California, Washington and Oregon. They came out of the tournament with one win and two losses. As a result, the Twisters were also invited to compete in the National Directors Cup in Delaware.
