OLYMPIA, Wash. – The Oly Town Artesians have been voted the best soccer crest in Washington State by fans and readers of goalWA.net, it was announced Thursday morning. The victory marks the second time that the Artesians blue and green Olympia inspired horseshoe crest has been named LogoWARS champion since the founding of the club in 2014.

Way back on January 7th, the Artesians scored twice in the final 25 seconds to tie and then beat the Tacoma Stars Reserves 6-5. We feared that the pictures from that game would never see the light of day, but team photographer Charis Wilson has delivered, and they are FANTASTIC! Well worth the wait. Enjoy!
