Cascade Christian soccer – Highlights from Channel 12 News

Girls soccer has been offered at Cascade for several years and has been coached by Mick Power since 2007. The 2014 season was an epic year for the girls’ team as they ended a 17-game losing streak to cross town rivals, St. Mary’s (2 in state), in a shootout during the quarterfinals of the OSAA 3A State Playoffs. They moved on to the semifinals and were defeated by only one goal (0 – 1) by the third ranked school, Westside Christian. Although a smaller squad this year, they had a record of 12-4-0 and were able to bring home an OSAA 3A Semifinalist trophy.

Girls Head Coach
Mick Power
I have been playing soccer since the age of five and grew up playing on school teams. When I entered the Royal Air Force I played for the base teams that I was assigned to during which time we won League Championships and Knockout Cup competitions. After leaving the Royal Air Force I moved to Alaska and coached a combined Army/Air Force team taking them from second to bottom of the league to runners up in one season. From there I moved south and arrived in Medford where I was invited to coach a boys youth team. This transitioned into coaching a U-14 boys team whose League had the privilege of knocking the back-to-back State Champions, who hadn’t been defeated in two years, out of the State Cup. From there I moved and assisted at South Medford High School for one year. I began coaching at Cascade Christian High School in 2007 and in the first year we moved out of the bottom rankings in the State and won twice as many games than the previous season. In successive years we built on that success and in 2014 we made it to the State OSAA Semi-Finals. This is a first for this school in soccer at this level and adding to that we were runners-up in the league. During my coaching here in southern Oregon I have been awarded the Oregon Youth Soccer Nike Classic Coach of the Year and the Girls Skyline Conference Coach of the Year.
