Boys’ Soccer kicks off 2017 season

By: Maisie Stout
The boys’ soccer team started their season August 19 with an exciting win against Buckhannon Upshur. Now in the middle of September, their record is 3-3-1.
“We lost a lot of great seniors that graduated so we are not starting out as well as last season, but we are working on turning it around,” said senior Steven Carte.
The team is led by co-captains: seniors Samuel Pierson, Steven Carte, Chris Neil, Ryan Shatto, and junior Broedy Boyce. The coaches are Tim Ross and Victor Boyce. Freshmen Wesley Hopper and Ian Gainey are two new players. They agree that they get to play a decent amount for freshmen. Hopper stated that it was easy to transition from a middle school to a high school team.
        The boys started pre-season practice on July 31 and worked hard to get in shape and work on building a strong team. Carte and Pierson mentioned playing on a recreational team, which helps them keep in shape year-round.
        “We never get rusty,” Pierson said.
        A common goal that all of the boys share is making it to the state championship, which they are very excited and eager for.
        “Our goal is to make it to states. If we can beat Parkersburg and Hurricane we can go to states, and we already did that,” Carte said.
        The boys will play Cabell Midland on September 9.
