This spring's MAYSA Cup Soccer tournament was wet and cold, but it was a great weekend for the Wisconsin Heights Soccer Club.

The club had its best showing ever at MAYSA Cup with eight teams and more than 100 players competing. Heights crowned two champions and had one runner-up finish.

"I am very proud of our soccer program," Heights coach Eric Ripp said. "Seven years ago we had one team with nine players competing in MAYSA Cup. We have come so far in teaching our children a life-long sport."

In the U14 bracket, Coach Jeff King's co-ed team won their second straight MAYSA Cup championship. The championship final went to a penalty kick shootout and was still tied after five players from each team had taken their shots.

When Heights' sixth kicker made his shot, keeper Trevor Dimpfl made the save to give Heights the victory.

In the U13 bracket, Ripp's co-ed team also took first place. After falling in their first game, Heights rallied to win their remaining games.

"Our players joined together to battle through losing our first game," Ripp said. "We finished the tournament without allowing a single goal in the next three games. The players knew what they had to do to win a championship. They focused and made it happen."

Registration is open for the 2017-18 soccer season. MAYSA registration is due by June 20. To register, go to and click on Registration.
