Lake Park’s Boys Varsity Soccer team celebrated a great success and made many memories from their fall season. With ten wins, four ties, and eight losses, the team celebrates with pride. Varsity Soccer also participated, and won, the Lake Park sponsored Hilliner’s Classic, and placed in top bracket of the annual Pepsi Co. Showdown.

Paul Grzybowicz and Tom Thomas, members on Boys Varsity, recapped the season among the team:

This year’s season was filled with memorable moments. It was really fun and I wish it lasted longer,” said Grzybowicz. “Winning the Hillner Classic was memorable because it’s a tournament that Lake Park hosts and it was nice winning it, bringing back some silverware.”

“[This season] was a successful one. We were able to come together and make it far,” said Thomas.

All of the players on the team made a massive impact because of successful season, but Grzybowicz makes a remark towards prosperous player, Franco Presta. “In my opinion, Franco Presta made the biggest impact this year because of his hard work and great mentality,” said Grzybowicz. “I [also] wanna give a shoutout to all the seniors because they were great role models and overall great teammates.”

     Franco Presta, another player on the team, describes the overall experience. “Overall, our team had a lot of fight considering that we had a super tough schedule,” said Presta. “We hit a rough patch during the middle of the season (if you look at our results you will notice areas where we lost more than won), but right after the Neuqua Valley game we had a talk with the team that cleared up any of the negativity that was causing us to not perform at our optimal level,” said Presta.

    Regarding the team itself, Presta mentions the reason for their success, even through their rough patch. “The team had a ton of talented players guided by a strong junior class, which will return even stronger next year. Everyone on the team offered something to help the team succeed,” said Presta.
