As expressed by WSHS library technician Robin Duplessis, "This group of young women are not just winners on the field, they are winners in life. The integrity and dignity with which they conducted themselves demonstrate this is not just by the measure of this award.  The manner in which they conduct themselves on a daily basis, even when no one is there to witness them, is the true measure of integrity.  Each one of the young ladies in this group has integrity and a winning attitude." Congratulations Coach Sergenian and all the members of the soccer team.

The Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award is given to United Soccer Coaches members at four levels. Teams honored at the platinum level went an entire season without a player or coach receiving a yellow card or red card. Teams honored at the gold (1-10%), silver (11-30%) and bronze (31-50%) levels are based on a percentage calculated by the total number of cards received by players/coaches divided by the team’s total number of games played.

The seven college teams in the platinum category will be formally acknowledged at the College Coaches Awards Reception on Jan. 10 at the Chicago Marriott Marquis Great Lakes Ballroom in conjunction with the 2019 United Soccer Coaches Convention. The 12 high school teams receiving platinum distinction will be honored at the High School Coaches Breakfast on Jan. 12 in the same location.

United Soccer Coaches will announce additional high school Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award winners for the 2018-19 school year at the conclusion of the winter and spring seasons.

Soccer Preliminary Playoff Games

Boys Soccer Preliminary Playoff Game Ends 1-3

By: Charlie Haberstock

At 3:00 last Friday afternoon, the boys’ soccer team faced the Brewer Witches in the Preliminary Playoff round of the Class B North conference. The team fought hard but eventually fell short, losing 1-3. Although Waterville outshot Brewer 29-9, it’s the shots that make the net that count. “We had plenty of opportunities, but we just couldn’t find the back of the net as they did,” says Josiah Bloom, who played 78 minutes on Friday. Bloom credits the Brewer goalie’s impressive performance for the loss, saying he read the shots extremely well. Even though Waterville didn’t come home victorious, the team still has a lot to be proud of. This game marks the end of an impressive season from a talented soccer team.
