Varsity Soccer Pushes Past Preseason Injuries to Stay Competitive in District

Currently ranked second in District, Boys Varsity Soccer is hoping to continue their winning track record.

After a tough loss to Lanier, the boys are now 2-1 in District and are hoping to once again grab the title. With seven district games remaining, players are still working on improving as a unit.

“The team is still working on team chemistry,” freshman Holden O’Kelley said. “We need to understand each other and how we play together much better.”

Preseason was filled with injuries and tough losses at multiple tournaments, but the team is happy to be back to full health as District begins.

“We are like a completely different team now. There’s a different attitude among the team now that everyone is back and healthy,” senior Case Danzeiser said.

As the team continues to adapt to their new young players, many are hopefully that the combination of the young talent and the upper-class experience will create a competitive atmosphere.

“Everybody is really committed to the team this year,” Danzeiser said. “At the beginning of the year I didn’t know how it was going to go after losing so many people, but from what I’ve seen so far, I think we’re going to do really well.

The team’s next game is Feb 2 at Noack Field against Reagan.
