As most of you know, our boys varsity soccer season has unfortunately come to an end recently, but they fought hard til the end. With practices 6 days a week 2 hours long they made it to the semi-final regionals! I commend them for achieving this great accomplishment, it wasn’t easy whatsoever. Jesse Fuentes on the boys varsity team says, “It was a tough but great season. We faced a lot of bumps in the roads lost, but with the family I have made throughout it, was more important.” In fact, most of the boys on the team had said that the best part of being in soccer was meeting new people and beginning friendships.
Also another popular answer I got interviewing most of the team was when I asked their favorite highlight. Anthony Martin and Justin Meid had unhesitatingly said “The game against Peoria on senior night definitely. We had a lot of supporters come out and it felt good to win the game with them counting on us.” Jesse said “The Mahomet game because it was revenge when we lost to them last year so it was relieving to know that our hard work and determination had paid off.”
The boys have made a mark in Centennial history and I say good luck to next years season! It was obvious that the boys had fun and also learned so much, hope well for the seniors who want to pursue soccer in college too!
