Mission Bay High School senior Nick Schoettle will participate in the Region IV Presidents’ Cup from June 12-16 in Boise, Idaho, the U.S. Youth national soccer tournament, after his club NADO 16 and under (BU16) captured the California state championship in late April after placing first out of 51 teams.

Region IV includes teams from Western states like Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Utah and Washington.

NADO BU16 completed the regular season with an 8-1-1 record and outscored its opponents 21-1. In the state tournament, NADO BU16 had to win six rounds of playoff games and culminated in a 2-1 victory over Apple Valley in the finals. The BU16 club finished ninth last year when it was at the BU15 level.

The BU16 club has also had success in notable local tournaments this year after winning the Nomads Coaches Tournament in March, finished as a finalist in the Nomads College Showcase in November and had three draws in the North Huntington Beach Cup in August.
