Season Recap: Boys Varsity Soccer

Coming into the fall season, Head Coach Ken McDaniels wanted to focus on a shift in culture and improvement of individual players’ skills throughout the season. Led by four returning seniors as captains, players focused on quality of play instead of outcomes, and on building personal responsibility. 

“As each player improved in their individual technical skills, each player also grew in confidence,” Coach McDaniels said. “This in turn increased improvement in our play and performances as a whole. Individual improvements added to our overall team culture also - it created a new level of seriousness and commitment to our teammates.”

The team showed a never-quit tenacity reflected in two shootout wins this season! The team as a whole moved away from playing kickball, and began trying to play with patience and skill - even when under pressure. 

“My favorite memory this season was the Shortridge game where I scored two equalizing goals and the winning penalty in the shootout,” senior player Patrick Machado said.

The Diploma Programme is a rigorous pre-university course of study designed for students in their final two years of high school. It is a broad-based, two-year course that aims to prepare students for university by encouraging students to be knowledgeable and inquiring but also caring and compassionate. There is a strong emphasis on encouraging students to develop intercultural understanding, open-mindedness, and the attitudes necessary to respect and evaluate a range of points of view.

The Extended Essay is an opportunity for students to gain experience with the independent research and writing skills expected at university. Students investigate a topic they personally care about from class and create a 4,000-word piece of independent research over the course of a year.
