Albertson Soccer Club was the big winner of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy Spring Showcase, the Memorial Day weekend event in Sarasota, Fla. The New York club was the only one of 73 Academy clubs taking part in the five-day event to win all six games, three each in the under-17/18 and under-15/16 age groups.

Albertson was one of four clubs ranked in the Top 10 in the U-17/18s to win all three games in that age group. It also won all three games in the U-15/16 age group. Other Top 10 U-17/18 teams to win all three games were the No. 1 Derby County Wolves, FC Delco and D.C. United. The only Top 10 team in the U-15/16 age group to have a perfect weekend was South California's Arsenal FC.

Coached by former U.S. U-20 international Adrian Gaitan, Albertson leads the U-17/18 Northeast Division with a 12-1-1 record and is assured of advancing to 32-team Academy Playoffs June 26-29 at Bryan Park in Greensboro, N.C. Tyler Arnone led Albertson in Sarasota with three goals, including both goals in a 2-0 win over Mustang SC.

Paul Riley coaches the U/15-16s, who are first in their division with two games to play in the regular season and will also compete in the playoffs. The wins improved their overall record to 13-11-4. Juan Dominguez scored three goals to lead the U-15/16s in their three wins.

The Showcase attracted scouts from most major Division I programs, as well as from English club Arsenal and Mexican club Tigres and its farm team.
