Despite some difficult times, the team showed hard work, dedication, and commitment throughout the entire season.
Coach Cristina Cuevas worked with the boys and pushed them to be their best on and off the field.
“I think as the JV coach and having such a young team we adapted and played well,” said coach Cuevas. “Of course, I would have liked to win more games but we did well and learned to play as a team.
The team struggled at the beginning of the season because of their lack of communication according to midfielder Tomas Becerra.
“As a captain, I struggled with not talking to my team as much as I should have,” said Becerra. ”This caused us to lose against teams that we should have been able to beat.”
Izeaah Morales thought as the season went on the team learned how to work together.
“One of my favorite memories was our first overnight game,” said midfielder Morales. “It helped us all get to know each other better and helped us figure out how to work together as a team.”
Cuevas was grateful that her team performed well in the classroom but needed to be better conditioned.
“I could say that one thing that would always hurt us in the second half was keeping our endurance,” said coach Cuevas. “So that will be our big goal for this coming season… get conditioned. I had a great group of boys well-behaved and hard workers.“
