The Stoney Creek Cougars won the title match against Plymouth Canton on Friday with a final score of 1-0. This is the first state championship win for the soccer team, and the second state championship win in the school’s 15-year history.  (The varsity competitive cheer team earned the state championship title in 2010.)

Coach Bryan Mittelstadt has been working with the girls soccer team for 10 years, serving as the varsity coach for the past six years.  “We had one of the most difficult roads leading into the state finals. We played some of the top-ranked teams in the state.  But the girls came together and persevered,” said Mittelstadt.

“There’s no doubt that the team has talent; but there is also a solidarity among the players that has propelled them to be the best in the state,” said SCHS Athletic Director Rick Jakacki. “Last year’s team lost 12 seniors, including nine starters. Of those nine starters, six students had signed on to play at the college level. Some may have thought this year’s team went into the season at a disadvantage, but these young women had the drive and determination to meet the challenge and succeed,” said Jakacki.

“We are proud of all of our student athletes. The qualities that they learn on and off the field—traits such as time management skills, teamwork, integrity and fair play—will stay with them through their entire life,” said SCHS Principal Cathryn Skedel, Ph.D.  “But today, we are particularly proud of our girls soccer team—Division 1 State Champions!”
