    Grand County High School junior Anika Scherer is a state champion – in Colorado.

    She plays for Fire FC Premier Howe 03 girls soccer team out of Grand Junction, which won the Colorado State Cup for U17 girls last weekend.

    The State Cup takes place in Denver over five weekends, with the best teams in the state competing, according to Pat Scherer, her father.

    Anika Scherer scored in the second half of the championship game against Arsenal Colorado Academy after a scoreless first half. She hit a a left-footed volley into the top corner. Fire FC extended the lead to 2-0 and then withstood a furious comeback by Arsenal to win the match 2-1, said Pat Scherer.

    Fire FC will represent Colorado in the regional and possibly national tournament.

    Anika has been playing on this team, coached by Shaun Howe, for three years. The team is also competing in the Colorado Champions League and is currently undefeated, said Scherer.
