Tahoe United adds another title to collection
Tahoe United doesn’t go into a club soccer tournament hoping to make the finals; the boys make it happen.
The under-14 boys’ soccer team recently took first place in the Comstock Tournament in Carson City. This No. 1 result came on the heels of winning the Reno-Micro-Six Tournament and finishing runner-up in the Sagebrush Start-up Tournament.
The young group of players has produced 18 top-two tournament results, including 11 first-place performances.
Tahoe United’s roster includes Austin Brooks, Bryce Bronken, Spenser Buchholz, Derek Caro, Tre Charrette, Diego Garcia, Manny Jimenez, Jesus Martinez-Olmas, Axll Maya, Andreas Orozco, David Rodriguez, R.J. Rupp, Mark Waite and Austin Williams.
Tahoe United is coached by Rob and Sonia Rupp and Abel Caro.
