It's been a while since I mentioned that I used to coach high school soccer in Newton, IA. Well in the last couple weeks they've made me so proud to have been a part of the program. The class that that was freshman the last year I coached, are now Seniors and they have defeated both Pella and Norwalk. Which have been the two toughest teams in the conference since we joined in my last year. We split with them beating Norwalk and losing to Pella when I coached and tied for 1st in the conference. This year they are on track to win conference if they can finish out the year well. As far as I know their only 2 loses are to two ranked teams, #7 Nevada and #1 Cedar Rapids Xavier. The only problem is that all of those teams are 1A teams and this year Newton is 2A. So they will have to face some pretty tough competition to make it to State.
I'm hoping to catch a game and see how far the girls have come since they were freshman. I have to figure out when when I can make it and hopefully I'll be able to catch more than 1 game. Well, I'm running out of interesting stuff to say, actually I didn't have much to start with, but Go Cards! Keep up the great work, I'm glad we're back on top!
