The Kahok Boys Soccer team is returning to the pitch with big goals this new season. Coach Clay Smith would like the boys to not only win Conference, but, one of their biggest goals is to stay strong. With the team losing a total of 12 seniors after this season, the underclassmen will need to step up and become leaders.
The Juniors are trying to learn as much as they can from the Seniors. One thing that the underclassmen will miss is the senior class.
Junior captain Nick Suria said, “We’re obviously losing a lot of our best players. But, I think that we will get better over the summer with our club teams. I’ve been with these guys my whole life so it’ll be a lot different and obviously we’re going to be missing our best goalie and our really good defense. But, I have faith in Coach Smith and I believe that we will be a really good team next year.”
Sophomore Logan Whitehead thinks “the sophomores and juniors that are on the team now returning next year will step up and try our best to replace them.”
The Senior boys will also miss a lot about this team. “I’ll miss the Purple Curtain the most,” Senior goalkeeper Brett Niedzwiecki said, “also, having Sam in the stands cheering for us.” Sabas Avalos, a fellow senior player, said he’ll miss Wobbe roast sessions and also Lugge’s motivational speeches.
The boys’ record is 6-5 with a conference record of 3-1 as of October 1.
