When the school year rolls around for another year, fall sports make their appearance once again, and that includes the boy’s varsity soccer team which is excited to make an attempt at district champions for the second year in a row.

Starting their season strong, the boys faced off against Cedar Springs high school, with a 1-0 win with a goal by Omar Hadzimuijic. The goal allowed the boys to start the first game of the season with high hopes for the rest of their season. Senior Lance Decker is ambitious for the season this year with high hopes they will go far with the new team.

“I am most excited for the playoffs and I think we will do better than last year because everyone has been putting in work,” Lance said.

Two days before the 2022-2023 school year starts, the boys have already played two games, with the second one being against Catholic Central  high school, with yet another win. A long rain delay was one of the first disturbances of the season, but this did not bring down the boy’s morale or stop them from winning yet another game with a goal by Noah Burr.

Head coach Paul Kramer is as excited as the boys to see what this season has in store for the team this year.

“Being with these kids keeps me young,” coach Kramer stated. “Sharing in their lives and being able to pour into it what knowledge I have is definitely rewarding.”

The boy’s next game is Tuesday, the 23rd, against Mona Shores in the Ranger stadium, where they are going to attempt to pocket a third win of the season, shooting to go 3-0.

“This is probably the most bonded team I’ve ever coached. We have not graduated a ton of players the last couple of seasons so the group is very familiar with one another and are all pulling in the same direction,” coach Kramer said.
