Collinsville Boys Soccer had a successful season and were able to advance to the regional final.

Varsity Head Coach Rob Lugge has loved the competitiveness throughout the season. Coach Lugge has been a high school coach for 15 years and has been the Collinsville head coach for six years. 

“I enjoy playing every team in our conference, but my favorite match ups or games were against CBC, Chaminade, and Webster Groves. These games allow us to see how we match up to some of the best programs in the St. Louis area,” said Lugge.

Junior Adam Reiniger was the leading scorer for the Kahoks this season. When the All-state forward was asked his biggest inspiration this season, Reiniger replied, “One of my biggest inspirations this season would have to be the fans that are always coming to watch us play and support us in any way possible. Also learning to play for the team itself has been very important to me and motivated me throughout the season. Coming into this season, there was a high expectation for us and we wanted to live up to those expectations.”

The Boys Soccer season came to a close on October 22 when they lost to Edwardsville 2-0. Edwardsville’s Tyler Dacus scored the first goal on a penalty kick mid-way through the second half. Then Collinsville conceded an own goal to close out the game. 

Collinsville won the conference on October 6 against Belleville East with a score of 1-0. They finished the season with a record of 17-4-2 and had a conference record of 9-1. Their only conference loss came against O’Fallon on October 10.
