The CISC Velocity 98B faced FC Europa Samba from Pennsylvania in the Championship game. After 30 minutes of extra time the 2-2 tie would force a shootout where the CISC boys won 4-2.
CISC Velocity 98B's Caleb Van Blankenstein earned the name of Top Goal Keeper and Talon Stanley was awarded Tournament MVP.
The Cook Inlet SC Velocity girls took a 6-1 win over GSA Force FC from Texas. Cook Inlet SC Velocity's Malia Lyken was named Tournament MVP, while Michelle Cole earned the Top Goal Keeper title.
"I definitely think it's a huge statement for Alaska soccer for us to come down here, us and the boys and do so well," said Cole, "I think it will start giving people in Alaska a chance to look at soccer more seriously and hopefully it will help Alaska grow."
The Presidents Cup National Tournament was a three day competition. The CISC boys' and girls' teams both played a total of four games in the tournament.
