Despite difficulties surrounding the pandemic, Country Day’s co-ed soccer team won eight of its nine games.
Co-coach Matt Vargo could not be prouder.
“It’s just like anything else. The more time you put in, the more you’re going to get out of it,” he said.
With most of the team showing up to Monday and Thursday practices and committing time to individual improvement, Vargo said that the strong performance is to be expected.
“I think we stepped up to the games that we had to step up to, and even the games where we played down to the opponent’s level, we still won,” said center-midfielder RJ Vargo.
Looking into next year’s season, Coach Vargo has high hopes.
“We only have one senior this year, so the majority of the team will be back bigger, stronger and faster than ever,” Coach Vargo said. “If all goes according to plan, we will be competing for a spot in the playoffs this time next year.”
