RICHMOND, VA (Via ECNL) – The Michigan Hawks have claimed the ECNL Overall Club Championship title for the second time in three years.
The Hawks claimed three Midwest Conference Championships this season, at U15, U16 and U18/U19, and had no team finish lower than third in one of the most difficult conferences in the country. Overall, the club qualified all five age groups for the top tier of the ECNL post-season, and it was in the post-season where the Hawks made their biggest statement yet.
The Michigan Hawks U15 and U17 teams both advanced to the ECNL Final Four in San Diego, where the U17 team was crowned ECNL National Champions. The ECNL U18/U19 team earned gold in Rockford, following up on their 2015-16 championship at U17, becoming an exceptionally rare back-to-back ECNL National Champion.
