For the past few weeks, boys soccer has been holding tryouts to see who will make each team. Head coach, Anthony Dimech weighs and looks for a variety of traits when choosing players for the varsity team.
“[Coach Dimech] looks for the ability to keep the ball, stamina, and the ability to finish.” Said Junior team member, Alex Ong.
And so far, the tryouts have been difficult.
“There are a lot of intense sprints and conditioning.” Said Ong, “[Coach Dimech] wants us to be prepared to play 80-90 minutes, or however long the game is, at 100%.”
Boys soccer has always been a widely popular sport, and as a result, the varsity team has the privilege of being chosen through this rigorous process.
“There are a lot of promising young players on the team.” Said Senior Robert Rochel, “I think we have a good chance at CCS this year.”
