Seasoned players lead soccer team

The boys’ soccer team is primed to build on last season’s improbable playoff run, when it made playoffs despite only winning three league games.

Head Coach Freddy Arroyo welcomes back 15 varsity players from last year, so the team will have a lot of experience this year.

“[Charlie] Porter ’12 will be an important player to watch,” Arroyo said. “Experienced along with talented young players will make our team strong this season.”

The team plans on spreading the field with strong wing play, which frees them to score on headers.

Defensively, the team will aim to force turnovers with strong ball pressure. Goalkeepers Wade Clement ’12 and Wiley Webb ’12 will likely split time between the sticks for the Wolverines this season, Arroyo said.

“Our two senior goalkeepers are talented and fundamentally sound,” Arroyo said. “They played an important role last season, so we have high expectations for them this season.”
