The winter season of sports has begun, and Lancer Field changes from a football field to a soccer field overnight. People fill the stands to watch the fun and excitement of another sport.
The team is still in preseason and are off to a slow start, but they have high hopes for a great season and a successful league play.
“Season so far is getting better, we are getting ready for our season, technically it is still preseason. I feel like we are improving as a team, and that’s what matters. Not really the results, and those will come.” Noah Dollenmayer, sophomore varsity midfielder, said.
Teammate, Kevin Springer, sophomore varsity defender agrees, “I think we are doing pretty well this year, we are a very young team with very little varsity experience. As far as all the games are going we are learning quickly. So we should be ready once the season starts.”
Although they are young, the soccer team believes that they will be strong competitors this year.
“My expectations are to make playoffs and set high standards for ourselves,” Dollenmayer said.
“I think in league we can be a serious contender, I think if we just keep progressing as much as we have been doing in preseason,” Springer said.
Every team has a rival, but who that is often depends on the sport.
“Yeah, I definitely say Newbury is the toughest opponent this year. Last year they were stacked from top to bottom, but we haven’t seen them yet this year. It is going to be tough games against them this year, but hopefully we can come out with the win,” Dollenmayer said.
Let’s hope these two players are right, and look forward to a successful soccer season for the boys.
