Coming off a successful season last year where the Bel Air Boys soccer team won district yet again for the third year, this year’s expectations are even higher, said varsity head coach Sergio Delgado.

Having not as much success as they are used to in the state playoffs, the Highlanders only won one game in last seasons playoffs.

“We have three team goals this season. First of all is win district, second is to go undefeated, and third is to win our first state championship,” senior Louis Herrera said.  Right now the team is 8-1-1 overall and 3-1 in district play.

The boys said they have worked very hard in the offseason and pushed themselves to the limit.

“The offseason has been tough on us with a lot of running, drills, and weights, but you have to work for what you really want,” senior Samuel Myers said.

The freshmen players are looking good according to coach Delgado as they strive to be like they’re older role models on JV and varsity.

“The freshmen this year have good work ethics and good attitudes which is very important for improvement and to grow in this program,” said coach Delgado.

The captains on the team are good role models and seem to carry the team setting good examples for the rest of the team to follow, and show the underclassmen the right way to go, Delgado said.

“The season has started off well, and hopefully we keep our success rolling for we know how much our school means to us, and that we represent proudly,” coach Delgado said.

The Highlanders consider anything less than a state championship, as falling short this season.

“We are primed and ready for our run. We have been getting close every year but we are not satisfied. Looking back on it 30 years from now, something we could show our children, we could look back and say we did it, ” Herrera said.
