The freshman boys soccer team walked away from the season not disappointed.

The boys finished off the season with a record of 11-4-3. In conference they finished 7-3-1, placing third.

A win that impacted the boys a lot this season was a 4-1 win over Joliet West. In the game, they were down 1-0, and David Wolosczuk scored a goal to tie the game up. Then Kevyn Garcia hit a 50-yard free kick to take the lead onto the game.

“The game gave us confidence versus a big rival that turned the season around for us,” midfield Jordan Neill said.

Injuries impacted the team this year quite a bit. There were small injuries here and there, but a big injury was Ethan Kimbarovsky suffering a concussion. The concussion brought the team’s confidence down a little as he missed four games. 

“When he came back, he became our leading scorer after missing a few games,” coach Mike Groark said.

This season, 18 out of 24 players had a goal or assist.

 “We worked hard to accomplish things season and overall I’m very proud,” forward Tyler Pointer said.

This whole season has been a big improvement for the players.

“From the best player to the worst they all improved a lot,” Groark said.

The team hopes to evaluate what they did this season to do it better next season.
