Ajax United Elite '95 Girls (Modesto) won the Super Group (highest level of competition) this past weekend in Turlock.

"Bailey Penix (Lodi) and Marissa Giovannoni (Stockton) were instrumental in us advancing this weekend." said coach Steve Aristotelous.

Penix led the team with five goals, including the game winner against Lamorinda (10th in the nation) in the finals, while Giovannoni completed her task, which consisted of keeping Lamorinda's national player off the scoreboard.

Ajax will now travel to Idaho and compete in the National Super Group and try to win the highest honor in U.S. Club Soccer.

"We are thrilled to have this opportunity, we seek out the best competiton so when we do well, we know we earned it," Aristotelous said.

After the first game of the tournament, Penix was identified and asked to participate in the U.S. Club soccer I.D. program, which is a potential path to the U-17 national program.
