    Varsity team huddling together. The boys encouraged each other to do their best.

    On October 25th the Varsity boys soccer team played Fort Zumwalt West. The varsity team, with a record of 11-12, lost to Fort Zumwalt West 1-0. The game was very close and kept the audience on the edge of their seats. Sophomore forward Bryce Kinser said it was an intense night.

    “Both teams were giving it all, when one team advanced the other brought them back down,” Kinser said.

    Both teams were pretty evenly matched, but eventually FZW wore down the Spartans. During the second half of the game West scored their goal. Senior forward CJ Brown expresses the importance of not getting too hard on yourself.

      “We tried our best as a team, but sometimes you just don’t win some,” Brown said.

    With a game like that team members often beat themselves up, even though they gave it their all. That’s where the importance of teamwork comes in, to keep everyone in perspective and encourage them to continue doing their best. The boys work really well together and are always ready to help out a fellow teammate. Sophomore defender Bobby Hubbert spoke kindly of the strength the members give each other.

    “Even though we lost, the team still encouraged each other and suggested ways we could improve our game,” Hubbert said.

    Unfortunately this game was in districts and the loss means the end of the Spartans season. We can expect a lot from the Spartans next year.
