The varsity boy’s soccer team worked hard from the very beginning to the last minute this season. The outcome, in the end, may not have been what they wanted but the boys made the best of what they had. They were 5th in the 3A North East.
“I was happy that we had a great team with diverse talent but we didn’t fully use it to our advantage, we could have played better as a team and passed the ball around a lot more and finished our chances instead of just shooting,” said senior Juan Lopez. “Overall it was a fun season with my boys.”
Lopez helped lead the team as a captain along with senior Marco Ruiz. As they led the team they realized some improvements could have been made but still made the best season.
“The highlights of the season was definitely just being able to play with the guys and spend time with them,” said Ruiz. “This season definitely could have gone better if the whole team put a little more commitment in but overall still had a good time.”
Timothy Patchen also appreciated the bond between the players on the team and believes the season could have had a better outcome.
“The team had a good brotherhood, we all treated each other like family, it was a decent season,” said Patchen. “We worked hard and will come back next year better and ready to win.”
