The Beverly Hills BU12 (boys under 12) EXTRA soccer team won the AYSO Western Region championship .
No BH AYSO team has ever won at the state level previously, so this team made history last weekend, March 16.
After winning the Sectional championship for the Los Angeles Area two weeks ago, the team traveled to Sacramento last weekend and defeated the best teams from the region of California, Oregon, Washington and Nevada.
Team members call themselves, D3, in memory of their coach, Darren Drew Davies, who died suddenly after coaching the team at a regular practice this season. Davies was also an assistant varsity coach at BHHS.
