Hours of practice, dedication and intense focus is what it takes to be a soccer champion. The boys varsity soccer team did just that.

Head soccer coach John True and the varsity boys soccer team finished their regular season with a 5-0 victory against Princeton High School making them the undefeated 2019 District 10-5A Champions. The team now works in preparation for playoffs.

Our team is so different from last years. There’s a wide mix of students ranging from freshman to senior.”

“The season is going well so far,” Coach True said. “The team gets along well and fights hard.”

Finishing a regular season with an undefeated record comes with its own set of challenges.

“It was hard to pull everyone together at first,” junior goalie Maxwell Quaye said. “Our team is so different from last years. There’s a wide mix of students ranging from freshman to senior.”

It was their undefeated record that motivated the team. Winning game after game raised the team’s spirit and momentum.

“I’m super proud of my team and what we accomplished,” junior Marcus Saldana said. “We deserved it with all the work we put in.”

Heading into playoffs, the team has just one goal in mind.

“We plan to win,” Coach True said. We have a strong organized defense and a strong fighting mindset. You never know what may happen.”

The team’s first playoff game is against Lonestar High School March 28.

“We need to finish what we started if we’re gonna beat Lonestar,” Saldana said. “One game at a time.”
