ALEX AND EVAN'S JOURNEY FROM U-10D TRAVEL TO THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
In 2011, Alex Kades and Evan Tracy were playing on the LMSC Force, our U-10D team. Their team lost in the Delco League Division 6 championship game.
Five years later, they were playing on the LMSC Sabertooth Rats, our U-15A team. The team won the state championship as well as the Region One championship so
the team advanced to the National championships. In 2019, the Rats again were state champions and advanced to the national championship. Alex was a two time all-state
player in high school and was recruited to play Division One soccer at the University of Pennsylvania. Tracy was a two-time first team all Central League selection,
both were captains of their high school team. If anyone wants to know if people on 'D' level travel teams ever move to higher levels of play, just ask Alex or Evan.
