Escalon United Teams recently completed their Spring Soccer League. The program had six teams playing in the Stanislaus Youth Soccer League and both the U11 and Ladies teams advanced to the playoffs.
In the playoff run, the U11 team took home third place honors while the Ladies team earned a second place finish.
Also, the Escalon United U18 Team recently participated in the El Dorado Tournament and took first place in that competition.
The program hosted its annual barbecue recently to celebrate the end of the season. Escalon United started with just one team seven years ago and has now grown into 60-plus kids playing on multiple teams.
