The boys soccer team won a state quarterfinal game for the first time since 2015 when they won the 4A championship. Overall, the Rockets won 16 games this season. 

Head coach Jerry Treat said hard work and dedication has contributed to the soccer team’s improvement and that new classes in the future help to better the team. 

“The incoming classes should help the level of the ups and downs, and help stabilize the program,” said Treat. 

Teagan Cobb is a sophomore defender on the team and he said he definitely sees a difference from last year’s team. 

“Our team has become a lot closer, we stuck together, and pushed each other to be better,” said Cobb. 

He also said he has a lot of faith in the upcoming classes, specifically the current freshman. 

“They [the freshmen] are the hardest working class I’ve seen for how small all of them are. They will still have to step it up, but I know they will,” said Cobb. 

Drew Leck is a senior midfielder and like Cobb, has also seen a change in the team. 

“This year I feel like our team’s chemistry was a major factor in our success this year. Without it, I don’t think we would have made it as far as we did,” said Leck.

Leck says he also is confident in the upcoming classes skills. 

“I think that the freshmen are going to do great next year. Almost all of them got to play in the semifinal game and the consolation game, and they really stepped up,” said Leck.
