Tigers Soccer Aiming for State Title


Griffin Keener, Staff Writer

After a winning season in the fall of 2019, Holy Family boys soccer is poised to have an incredibly successful run in the 2021 spring season. The Tigers have their eyes set on a state championship. With a roster stacked full of seniors, this dream may very well come true.

One challenge they are faced with is the switch from their normal fall season to a much colder spring/winter season. The boys are prepared for much colder weather during their season. “Playing in the cold is definitely going to be a challenge, but we’ll be well-equipped to handle it by the time the season starts.” Said Senior Alex Kusek. The team has started practicing, and games will start mid-March.

Another challenge the Tigers must face is being placed in a more difficult league than their previous seasons. Senior Kiernan Opp stated: “It will be a tougher season, but we are looking really good, especially the seniors, so I’m excited for how this season will turn out.” The Tigers face off against Silver Creek on the March 15th. Silver Creek went 7-0 last season, which could make the first game for the Tigers a tough one. However, even after a rough start, they should come back and power through for a winning record.

With a team full of experienced seniors, Holy Family soccer should have a fantastic shot at a state title. Riding the momentum from last year’s league championship, the Tigers should make an impressive run in the upcoming season.
