Thanks in large part to their service to the community, the Cascade Christian Challengers boys soccer team has been named the Les Schwab Oregon 3A team of the month for October by the OSAA. The announcement was made via social media this week, and Cascade Christian will receive a plaque and Les Schwab will donate $100 to the boys soccer program.
Coach Javier De La Mora called the team into action following the devastating wildfires that occurred in September. Members of the team helped a family move into a new Medford home after their Phoenix residence was destroyed by the Almeda fire. Over a period of two days the team was able to do in a few hours what would have taken a lot longer, a family member said. It gave the team a great opportunity to be ambassadors for Christ to the Reyes family, the mother said the team was “sent by God.”
The Challenger boys have been going hard at it, playing in a fall soccer league against a wide range of schools- from Hidden Valley to Phoenix. The team also recently hiked Upper Table Rock, covering over five miles in the trek.
Great job team. Bringing glory to God and sharing his love is what it’s all about.
