The boys soccer team wants to hit the ground running after finishing 11-1-1 last season and winning Bi-district championship.

The boys soccer program was placed in a district alignment with some of the top teams in the region such as Kingwood Park, who reached the quarterfinals, and Huntsville, who were regional finalists in the previous season.

The program is placed in district 20-5A, with teams including Kingwood Park, Huntsville, Montgomery, Lake Creek, New Caney, Porter, Tomball and Willis.

The boys soccer team will be playing in a district that is made up of nine teams.

“We have like two of the top 10 teams in the region that are in our district this year,” McGregor said. “And possibly nine teams, which is  quite a bit of teams for a district.”

Last season the team went to playoffs and were unable to continue the 4-1 loss against Houston Wisdom.

“It was an amazing experience,” junior Ulysses Cruz said. “When we lost against them, I felt like if I let the team down, but we always gotta keep our head up and always move forward.”

“We gotta talk more,” Benitez said. “We gotta have good communication skills between the whole team.”
