Eclipse Select repeats triple feat

For the second year in a row, Eclipse Select of Illinois captured three titles at the U.S. Youth Soccer Region II Championships.

Eclipse Select's U-19s were the only team to repeat as regional champions.

The U-17s already had qualified for the National Championships thanks to their National League runner-up finish, so Ohio's Internationals SC, which lost, 4-0, in the final, also qualified for the nationals.

Eclipse Select has now won 10 regional titles in the last four years.
