Congratulations to the Cheyenne East High School Girl's Soccer team on taking the Class 4A State Soccer Championship last weekend.

It came down to a 5-4 shootout win over cross-town rivals Cheyenne Central on Saturday, May 18, and the Lady Thunderbirds take the crown, their first state championship since 2002.

And good job by the Lady Indians coming in second place.Along with all the girl's on the East High team, want to congratulate the soccer team coaches too; head coach Jim Gardner and assistant coaches Marie Welliver and Jessie Gallegos.

East High soccer standout Rachel Erickson picked up more honors this week, being picked as the 2012-2013 Gatorade Wyoming Girl's Soccer Player of the Year.
