It was a great day for Greenie Soccer on Tuesday as both the Junior Varsity and Varsity teams left the field victorious.
Christ School's varsity soccer team has faced a tough early-season schedule again this year, and after nine games a 3-6 overall and 0-4 vs NCISAA 4A schools.
Though the Greenies fell to Providence Day on the road Thursday night, the coaching staff remains incredibly confident in the teams ability. In an even first half, the Greenies gave up a goal in the first 20 minutes before letting in a blooper late.
After starting the season 3-5 last year, Christ School soccer won 10 of its last 12 games before falling in a hotly-contested quarterfinal playoff match on the road to Cannon School. While the Greenies graduated Conference Player of the Year John Beard '18, a wealth of players are ready to step up. Leading the way are all-conference returners Corey Lavinder '19 and Thomas May '19 as well as Marcus Berger '19.
Recent graduate Faris Serafim '18, a former all-conference soccer player who suffered an ACL tear early in the 2017 season, has decided to continue his career at Lees-McRae College.
The Varsity Soccer team has seen great success in the Western Carolinas over the past few years, and this year was no different.
