The boys varsity soccer squad finished their final season with a record of 5 wins, 8 losses, and 1 draw. The strength of the team isn’t in the record, but it is in the bonds that have been made among numerous players, especially the senior captains.

“My best memory of being a captain was making people do what I wanted them to do.” said Zack Yurich.

“Beating Frederick” was their best memory said Matt Watson and Gregg Dorsch.

When this year’s varsity leaders graduate, who will fill their shoes?

“I expect Josh Watson to lead the team, next year.  Keep the Watsons as captains,” said Matt.

“I’d say that Bobby Bruce will be a captain next year. He’s a hard player and he knows the game real well,” said Greg.

“Jordan Frome. He is probably the best defender besides John and Matt, and he is the person to lead the back line when we’re not there next year,” said Yurich.

Next year the boys will try to attend any games they can manage to go to with their busy college schedules.

Matt Watson is on his way to the freshman class of 2020 at the University of Maryland. He will study math and science; however, he won’t be playing soccer as a Terrapin.

Zack Yurich is headed to St. Mary’s College of Maryland playing for the Gaels Men’s Soccer squad. He plans to major in education with a minor degree in history.

Greg Dorsch will venture off to Pennsylvania College of Technology for Welding, Fabrication, and Engineering for his 4-year bachelor degree. Greg will play soccer there for the Wildcats.
