Congratulations to Samantha Mar for making it on as a freshman to the UC Merced Bobcats soccer team! Sammy formerly played for our very own Valkyries 94 team coached by Libby Rappolt. She went to the UC Merced tryouts as a walk-on, determined for a chance to play college soccer. Her hard work paid off, and she has been enjoying the season as her teams's holding midfielder, and has been a regular starter! Keep up the good work Sammy!
The Valkyries '94 leading left-footed scorer, Margaux Sleckman, has made a positional change to outside left defender to win a spot on the McGill University team. Congratualtions Margaux!

Part of Hawaiian culture, ohana means family in an extended sense of the term including blood-related, adoptive or intentional. It emphasizes that family are bound together and members must cooperate and remember one another.
The SFVSC U18 Valkyries won the consolation bracket at GGI but they were champions in team spirit!
The Vikings Club newly formed U10 Girls travel team played their first games together as a team at the Central Marin Premier Challenge tournament on August 27-28.
The team handily won its bracket with 29 points, scoring identical 3-0 victories over two NorCal Silver Elite level teams (Bay Oaks Blue Bombers and Mill Valley Rockers) along with a 7-1 win over a CCSL Bronze team (Juventus Eclipse).
The team finally succumbed to a NorCal Gold level team, the Bay Oaks Gold Bombers (15th ranked in NorCal), in the Championship game but had the distinction of being the only team in the tournament to score a goal against the Gold Bombers.
All in all, a great start to a new season for our newly formed Vikings Club U10 Girls travel team playing their first games ever.
The U18G Valkyries battled hard in Roseville, CA last weekend, in 90+ temperatures, and finished 2nd place out of 12 teams.
