Varsity Soccer

The captains were seniors Ryan Ernest, Jovan Johnson Jr., Carson Clark, and Daniel Rickle; however, senior Ryan Rolland said, “Even if you weren’t claimed as a captain, we still had leaders everywhere.”

One of the team’s most exciting games was the homecoming game. The game was described as “very hype” by the team.
