Boys soccer maintains a winning record


They work together to reach their common goal. Each person is an asset to the team, and they grow closer with every game. They show a great deal of determination and dedication toward their sport. Every goal the boys soccer team makes helps  keep their record in good standing.

The boys varsity soccer team has a record of 4-2 so far this season. They have played Lansing, Blue Valley, Olathe North, Heritage Christian, Bishop Miege and Turner. With instruction from their coach Jason Pendleton, they are hoping to maintain their record.

“I think we will keep an excellent record this year,” junior and varsity player Cole Nyffeler said. “We work really well as a team.”

At each soccer game, the varsity players have a great deal of support from their peers. Many students come to the field to cheer on the boys.

“I love going to support the team,” senior Trevor Watson said. “They’re doing great this year. I think they can go pretty far in state if they work hard.”

The fans along with the cheerleaders keep the players motivated while they are on the field. Some fans paint their bodies with players numbers; others bring signs. Cheerleaders pump up the crowd and cheer on the team.

“Having fans definitely helps us during our games,” senior and varsity player David Hu said. “It’s awesome to hear people cheering us on and it helps motivate as well as pump us up. When we have lots of fans, it raises our expectations. It’s great to have fans like Jack Raybuck and Adam Samazin who are constantly there showing their support. Also our team really appreciates the cheerleaders who are always there for us.”
