Rising Stars: The Journey of the 14U/15U Girls Red AC Toros

IMG_8045The 14U/15U Girls Red AC Toros soccer  team is a force to be reckoned with, comprising a dynamic mix of players from various MKSC regions. Led by Coach Eric Natwick, who has prior experience working with several of these talented girls, the team had a remarkable season, navigating both triumphs and challenges. Their journey showcases their dedication, camaraderie, and passion for the game.


The AC Toros 14U/15U Red Team boasts a unique blend of players, some of whom have been part of the team from its inception, while others joined just last season. This amalgamation of talent has created a potent force on the field. Hailing from Milwaukee, Oak Creek, and Mukwonago, these girls have come together, leaving behind rivalries, to play with one another as a cohesive unit.


Coach Eric Natwick took the reins of the team for the first-time last year. While relatively new to the position, he was no stranger to working with many of the girls in different capacities, having trained them on various teams and in diverse training environments. His expertise and familiarity with the players undoubtedly played a pivotal role in shaping the team's success.


The girls faced an action-packed season, participating in three spring tournaments alongside their regular league schedule, making it a busy and intense two months. Through their perseverance and dedication, they tasted victory in numerous matches, but the path to success wasn't without hurdles. The team's resilience was tested, and they emerged stronger, having learned from both their victories and setbacks. One of the season's high points was the Kickin' It Lakeside Tournament held in Sheboygan. The girls displayed their exceptional skills and teamwork, culminating in a remarkable triumph as champions. The victory not only boosted their confidence but also served as a testament to their hard work paying off.


Additionally, the 14U/15U girls had a memorable trip to St. Louis for the Scott Gallagher Spring Tournament, which allowed the girls to face formidable opponents in three highly competitive games. However, what made the trip truly unforgettable was the courage they exhibited in surviving six tornados that struck the area that Saturday night. This experience not only strengthened their bond as a team but also showcased their resilience in the face of adversity.


Beyond the field, the 14U/15U Girls Red Toros have been making waves on social media. Contributing their ideas and creativity, they produced a captivating post that has now become the most viewed and liked Toros post of all time, amassing over 8,400 views and nearly 2,000 likes. This remarkable group of girls exemplifies the true spirit of athletes who are committed to putting in the hard work, trusting the process, and constantly challenging themselves. Having progressed through the ranks of C, B, and A levels of the SECL, they are now gearing up for their next challenge: playing at the state level in the upcoming fall season. Their determination and passion are a source of pride for everyone associated with the Toros organization.


The 14U/15U Girls Red AC Toros team has forged a bond that goes beyond individual talents. United by a passion for the sport, this group of players has proven that teamwork, dedication, and resilience are the keys to success. As they continue to make strides on their soccer journey, their accomplishments and spirit will undoubtedly inspire others, leaving a lasting impact on our club!
