Senior Night – Soccer

The soccer Tigers honored their senior class before their game against Willard. Coach Kevin Hauck notes the senior group’s memorable introduction to high school soccer.

“This group of seniors were freshman when we as a program experienced one of the, if not the most exciting seasons in program history. They have worked hard and been a big part of each season since their freshman year,” he said. “They are competitive and love to win. They have a strong bond with each other and want to support each other on and off the field. They conduct themselves properly. They really do set a good example of how a student athlete should be – keeping grades up first, being active in our school and community, and representing our programs, schools, and community the best they can. It was a fun group to coach and I hope we are able to turn this around early and make this a memorable season for them.”

During the game, the Tigers got two goals from Philip Mason, one from Will Fronabarger, and one from Jabali Wanekaya, but dropped a 5-4 decision.
