Steven Quella, goalkeeper with Door County United soccer club and Gibraltar/Sevastopol High School, competed in the US Youth Soccer Region II Olympic Development Program (ODP) tournament held in Rockford, IL, July 18 – 20.

After numerous tryouts and trainings sessions, which started in November of last year, Quella was selected as a member of the 18-player squad to represent the state of Wisconsin for boys born in 1992.

Region II of the US Youth Soccer ODP, which is comprised of 14 states, saw 12 states compete in the 1992 level at this year’s tournament. Wisconsin defeated Missouri 3-2, fell to Ohio South 3-1, and tied Michigan 2-2. With a record of 1-1-1 Wisconsin finished fifth in the tournament, just missing the four-team play-offs. Indiana won the overall tournament.

Quella made three saves against Missouri and Ohio South and stepped it up a notch while recording six saves against Michigan.
