Boys soccer takes control
Through hard work, fast play, and focus, the Varsity Boys Soccer team led by seniors Josh Peil, Luke Ryan, and Conrad d’Leeuwen are determined to work as hard as it takes to do well in playoffs.
“This year I expect that we can make a run in the playoffs and hopefully get back to the state championship game,” says Peil, who has been playing since the age of eight.
The expectations are high, and the intensity is up for this season, especially for these senior captains. Ryan has been playing since age four, and nothing is slowing him down.
“I love the fluidity of the game and how anything can happen. I expect a lot of wins. It may be a rough start, but I think we will improve as the season goes on,” Ryan says.
As for d’Leeuwen, who hasn’t been able to get away from playing since he was five, says
“I love that it’s a team sport, and I expect to do very very well into the playoffs.”
This team does not plan on slowing down until that State Championship game, and they know that if they keep working hard, there is nothing holding them back from being the best in state. Right now, they are 4-3-2 with upcoming games against Castle View on October 1 and Mountain Vista on October 3.by
