3.27.14: RICHIE SCHLENTZ recently debuted with the Philadelphia Union Academy U14 squad and provided an assist, as the Union rolled to a 6-0 victory over PA Classics Academy, in US Soccer Development Academy league play. Schlentz began his soccer career with WCUSC in the U7 Recreation Program, before joining the U8 Travel Development Program, and ultimately the Predators ’98 travel team.  In 2013, he moved up to WCUSC’s elite Penn Fusion program with the U14 Penn Fusion team, who ended up winning both Eastern PA State and Region I Championships, before placing 3rd in USYSA National Championship in Kansas.   In early 2014, the Union approached Penn Fusion 98 Coach Mark Thomas with their interest, and following several weeks of trials, Richie was offered and accepted, a spot with the Union Academy Program.  “West Chester United and Penn Fusion, have been my soccer home for nearly 10 years.  I never felt the need to look elsewhere, as the club has always offered top level training and great competition.  I will miss the boys and I am certainly thankful to West Chester United, since this opportunity to try an even higher level of play is all due to the great experiences I’ve had there.”  WCUSC and Penn Fusion wish Richie and the Schlentz family the best of luck!
