Varsity boys soccer created Wakeland history when they moved up to number two in the USA TODAY High School Sports/National Soccer Coaches Association of America Super 25 for winter boys soccer. The Super 25 teams were chosen out of the states Arizona, California, Florida, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas – the seven states with teams that compete for this title.

“I was pretty excited when I found out,” sophomore Matt Mazur said. “I didn’t realize that high school had national rankings. I’m just really excited to be second in the nation. It’s such an honor to be playing for Wakeland.”

The seniors this year are very proud of how well their team is doing and are hoping to help the upcoming leaders be role models on and off the field. The new players on the team feel comfortable with the entire team, and Mazur feels good about working with all of his teammates.

“The seniors are just making sure there’s the right leadership,” Mazur said. “They do a good job making sure we do the right things and stay out of trouble. They make sure we pay attention in practice so we can take our skills to the next year.”

Varsity has been undefeated for 11 consecutive games since an early season 2-2 tie with Hebron. They continued this streak at the Centennial game Tuesday, February 23 with a score of 3-2. Coach Rusty Oglesby has his boys practicing possession, shooting, crossing and finally finish their practice with a scrimmage to keep their skills at the top of their game.

“This season we are doing very well,” Mazur said. “We are undefeated and looking to keep the streak living on. In the future, hopefully we can keep that national ranking and take more wins. I want more district titles, and I want to go for another state title.”
