On Thursday, January 31, 2019, the boys soccer team was supposed to have their last game, but the rain caused the game to be cancelled. The day before, the boys played their last competitive game of the season without even knowing it.
While there’s always next season to continue to play more games, the seniors played their last competitive high school soccer game ever. Senior Niklas Weckle said that he’s very happy with how his last game went.
“I feel good about the game,” Niklas said. “[It was] my last season, I think I had the most fun.”
Although it was his last game, he’s not disappointed he didn’t know it, as the entire team played extremely well.
Doug Colborn, Head of the Athletic Department at upper campus, is very proud of them and happy with how they played.
“They made me super proud,” Mr. Colborn said. “I think they joined together, banded together, and picked each other up.”
On Wednesday, January 30, they played the Thacher School’s JV team and won 2-1. The boys had played the same team the Saturday before and lost, but instead of being discouraged they were ready to fight.
They truly brought a great fight and had a great end to the season. They should be very proud, although some may never play at OVS again.Share
