For the first time, WLC’s soccer program organized two junior varsity level teams, A and B, as opposed to a JV and freshman teams. The teams had extremely different results for their seasons both but had some special moments.
The JV-A soccer team, comprised of nine sophomores and eleven are freshman,went 11-1-2. “We had a pretty good season,” said freshman Alex Basmajian, a starter for the JV-A soccer team. “I scored six goals, which is pretty good for me.”
The JV-A team practiced everyday which was overlooked by Coach Sharpe.
Freshman Josh Peterman who was a starter and captain for the JVA team and scored one goal during the season. “It was a fun and cool experience being captain for the team and I hope I can make the varsity team next season,” Peterman stated. Another captain and starter for the JV-A team, sophomore David James, scored three goals. “I really didn’t expect to be a captain but was really fun being a leader for the rest of the team,” David stated.
The JV-B soccer team, made up of three sophomores and 20 freshmen struggled a bit, posting a 2-1-10 for their season. Still, the team work hard and shared many great experiences as a team. “It may have been a bad season but there were some good moments during it,” freshman Jared Reynolds said. One such moment was the game against Ann Arbor Skyline to which they didn’t show up.
The most memorable moment for us was probably winning the last game, which was the game we did the best in said both freshmen Gabe Seman and freshman Thomas Odish. The last game for the JV-B team was against West Bloomfield with the game ending 2-0 with Central winning.The JV-B team practiced five days a week during the summer and three days a week during the school year.
