The soccer team had one of the best records in school history and won the 4th regional championship. They finished with a record of 18-2.
Leo Wurth, sophomore forward, thought the defense was what made the team so good.
“We had the best defense in the state, with the additions of 2 goal scorers with 20+ goals this season when you have a coach as good as Coach Huskey he can create lots of success with that,” Wurth said.
The high school soccer experience and teammates are the best memories of Jayden Vossen, senior forward.
“The thing I will miss most about high school soccer is the bonds I made with the younger players,” Vossen said.
Having fun with the team is what Jack Benedict, senior defender, loved about soccer.
“Everyone on the team is really competitive, but the thing I will miss about high school soccer if just having fun with my teammates. I loved having fun at practice and games and just spending time with my friends I made on the team,” Benedict said.
Grant Davis, junior defender, thought the team had a good chance against a strong Maize South team in the state quarterfinals, but said Maize South played a great game.
“Going into it we thought we knew how they were gonna play and I feel like we did our jobs well in the first half, but in the second half they came out and played a good game and we couldn’t match their energy. Even though we lost, I’m proud of the season and the team we lost to is really talented,” Davis said.
The team ended up getting outplayed despite trying their best believes Blake Robison, senior goalie.
“We played our hardest and should have won that game, we all know it, but there was a really tough team on the other side of the ball and we made more mistakes than them, that’s it,” Robison said.
The soccer team lost 4-2 in the state quarterfinals to the eventual 5A state runner-up Maize South. Blue Valley Southwest was the champion of 5A soccer.
