Boys varsity soccer team makes it to district finals

November 28, 2018

The boys soccer team kicked their way to district finals in this fall season, summarizing it as a “huge success,” varsity boys soccer coach Matthew Sullivan said.

“We all got extremely close and had a ton of fun with each other,” Sullivan said. “I looked forward to every practice and game and opportunity to be with these guys.”

While the team has goals of making it far in the competition, they also make it a priority to have fun while doing it. Freshman Ben Chapple says that the team had lots of fun and was able to bond fairly well.

“I was unsure how much fun we would have,” Sullivan said. “We struggled with selfishness the year before but our seniors this season really matured from last year and set perfect examples for the rest of the team.”

Despite some struggles, the team pulled through and created bonds that led to success in their season, beating Linden in overtime in the district game.

“From my four years of being on the team, I’ve taken away that it doesn’t matter how good the other team might be,” senior Noah Martin said. “The most important thing I’ve learned is you can do a lot when you have a strong bond within the team.”
