Season Recap: Middle School Soccer
The ISI Middle School Soccer Team had a very successful season, with an expanded team allowing students Grades 4 through 8 to compete.
“Our goals as a team for the season were to continue building important skills and soccer IQ, as well as being competitive in our division,” Coach Nathan Gardiner said. “We focused on growing together in a team setting, developing or strengthening friendships, and to enjoy the experience”
With a young team, it was up to returning players to step up and show leadership, setting good examples of effort and sportsmanship for the younger teammates and helping them improve their skills.
“My biggest accomplishment of this season is when I made it all the way up the field with the ball and passed it, leading to a score,” Grade 7 player Delano Sanchez said.
The coaching staff is incredibly proud of the entire team for the growth and cohesiveness they demonstrated on and off the pitch. The team surpassed all expectations this year and left a solid foundation and momentum to build off of for next year.
