Waitsburg-Prescott wins first state championship in history

Posted: Updated:

WAITSBURG, Wash. -- The Waitsburg-Prescott boys soccer team won the schools first ever 2B/1B state championship last Saturday. 

What is even more remarkable is that the soccer program at Waitsburg-Prescott is only two years old. The Cardinals defeated Providence Classic Christian Academy 1-0 Saturday with a first year head coach too. Coach and players say the state championship is something special.

"The experience was just fantastic. I'm not sure if they really understand what it means to have a state championship. I'm not sure if they even fully grasp how rare of an opportunity they've had," said Mark Grim, head coach.

"It shows that this school has what it takes to play with other top schools in the state and just to prove we can do it," said Kevin Ortega, Waitsburg-Prescott senior.
