Matrix Logo History

We are sometimes asked about our logo, what the shield means and the symbolism. I am searching the memory bank here, which is always a scary proposition. But if I recall correctly, it was created by Erin Lingo, with input from others including Ivan Medellin. Anyway, here is the description:

Star=celestial goodness, noble person

Wreath of laurel leaves and berries= Triumph

Gold= Generosity and elevation of the mind

White=  Peace and sincerity

Maroon= Patient in battle, and yet victorious

Coach Romo’s U14G Team is Ready for U15G

The team consists of a highly athletic, competitive and skillful group of players that is transitioning to U15G for the fall 2012 season. This group of girls also has a tradition of strong tournament finishes. Since its initial formation as an AYSO all-star team and now as a seasoned Matrix team, the girls have captured a remarkable 11 championships and one indoor title as well. Highlights include last May’s Cerritos Cup, where the squad took home a victory over a nationally ranked Arsenal team in a match played at Long Beach State University. Most recently, the team was crowned Co-Champions of the Memorial Super Cup.

For information about tryouts or to practice with the team, contact Coach Hector Romo at (619) 606-3884.
