Even though the Varsity boys soccer team provided exciting action all season, everyone who went to one of the JV boys soccer games was far from disappointed. The JV team went undefeated this season, with two games ending in a tie and the rest victories. Lead by their captain, sophomore Miguel Hernandez, the team pleasantly surprised fans with this outstanding season.
Junior Garrett Taylor, was a strong force on the team and had this to say about the coaching style and team that played with him through each victory: “Our coach was very good at communicating with the players and really getting to know what they were good at and what they weren’t. He did a really good job of intelligently playing his players on the field to help secure our wins.”
Not only did the team go undefeated, but they also grew close as the season went on, getting to really know the ins and outs of one another’s playing styles to become one cohesive team. As the players grew to understand their strengths and weaknesses they played to them. Junior Patrick Evans spoke nothing but praise about his team and their season. “The team knew what every player was capable of and we were always prepared for whatever competition we faced.”
We are all very excited to see where the team will go next year coming off this great season. We look forward to seeing many of their faces out on the varsity field, securing another undefeated season, but until then the JV players are just excited to have played so well and had so much fun. Sophomore Spencer Perkins is really looking forward to the season next year and seeing where the team goes. “I think it is great that we have so much potential for next season and I really hope to see our JV boys moving up to varsity.”
