Varsity Soccer has some impressive history, but how are their prospects for next year? This year varsity got to the second round of playoffs, which is not too bad for a team just contracting a new coach. Varsity soccer was 9-2-7, which is a drastic difference from their record the year before when the record was 17-2. The previous coach, Chris Hastings, had lots of experience and time with the players unlike the new coach, Brendan Kennedy. When Mr. Kennedy has more time with the players, the team should get much better. 

“They should be better than last year, with a good crew of sophomores coming in. Also with Mr. Kennedy being in his second year, he should feel more comfortable coaching his team,” JV boys soccer coach Joe Zaccagnini explained. 

Varsity soccer is rebuilding, with new players coming in and a strong set of returning seniors. Many juniors got a good amount of playing time this year, and some started, leaving varsity with some starters and essential players from last year. 

“I think the sophomores coming in for varsity next year are very talented, and+ are going to make some essential additions to the team,” senior Liam Horch said. 

Mr. Kennedy is also starting up after school sessions in the weight room. This way players have an opportunity to show their commitment to the sport and better themselves for next season. 

“I’m glad Kennedy made the weight room open for us after school, so we all have an opportunity to grow for the next season,” sophomore Henry Horch said. 

Some players were also slightly disappointed with varsity’s performance this year, leaving them with grudge matches and more motivation to do better next year. 

“I’m definitely very excited to play varsity next year, well if I make it. All of the starters from last year on JV will probably make it next year, and I’m looking forward to two more years of soccer,” sophomore Chase Bettick said. 

Varsity soccer is looking up for next year, with players working hard in the offseason. Players’ optimism and work ethic give high hopes for the next season.

I play for the CHS JV soccer team, and I enjoy cooking food and chilling with the boys.
