This season the seventh grade black soccer team has learned to play together and how to bond as players and as friends. The team was also very successful in their games, as they finished the regular season with a record of 6-0-1. The team they tied to was Egham on October 26. The final score was 1-1.

“At the start of the season we just talked to our friends,” said Nathan Lewis. “But now at practice and games we are all laughing together.”

The team bonded by learning how to dribble, shoot, and pass the ball in their practices. Having a successful season was the result of many practices spent learning how to work together as a team. “The first game we were all just running everywhere so we learned where to play the ball as well as some skills,” said Lewis. 

As well as bonding, the team had a huge highlight of the season, coming back from 2-1. Santiago Londono said, “…the team highlight of the season was the first game because we were down in the first half 2-1. At the start we were kind of frustrated, but then we worked really hard and helped each other out on the pitch and we back and won 10-2. It really set our expectations as a team.” This is another example of how the black soccer team has bonded together.

The team has had a successful regular season even with some bumps along the way.
