La Mirada Pop Warner Pee Wee Blue Team Recognized For Achievements
The La Mirada City Council recognized the La Mirada Pop Warner Pee Wee Blue team for its Athletic achievements while competing at local and championship levels.
For the past two regular seasons, the Pee Wee Blue team has gone undefeated. The team has won the Orange Empire Conference and Southern California River Bowl Conference, which include teams from across Southern California. After earning the championship title in both conferences, the Pee Wee Blue team advanced to the Wescon Conference where they competed against teams from throughout California. Through their dedication and hard work, the team earned the California Wescon Championship.
The team composed of players ages 11 and 12 includes 18 boys and one girl. Players are also taught the importance of academics; each player is required to maintain a 3.0 grade point average. The majority of players maintain a 3.8 grade point average or higher. Two players, Justin Contreras and Larissa Robles, have earned the All American title, which is the highest scholar athlete acknowledgement within Pop Warner National.
“La Mirada is proud to be represented by a phenomenal team that excels both on and off the field,” says Community Services Director Lori Thompson. “The young talent combined with the amazing work of the coaches and parents create an environment of success for these athletes.”
