The Clintonville High School (CHS) boys’ soccer team celebrated their successful season at their banquet held on Monday evening. The players and their families had much to celebrate. For the first time in school history, the team earned 10 wins.
The team also had a record five players earning all-conference awards. Connor Gehrke was given honorable mention. Ehrick George and Dominic Masiarchin were named third team all-conference. Juan Hernandez earned second team standings and Steven Davies won first team all-conference.
“Congratulations for putting Clintonville on the map for soccer,” stated Coach Roger Lupien.
Lupien spoke at the banquet and handed out the awards. The most improved award went to senior Steven Davies who scored his first career hat trick this year. The most valuable player award went to junior Juan Hernandez. Coach Lupien stated, “You worked hard and it showed.” Lupien told the group that they were an exceptional group of boys.
The Trucker Soccer team was often commended for being the only team to show appreciation and respect to the officials by offering handshakes at the game’s end. Lupien concluded by saying that he will miss the seniors.
The soccer board and players appreciate the Clintonville School Board and their donation to the self-funded sport this year. Their donation of $2,000 to the boys’ season is going toward busing and officiating. The soccer team hopes to gain acceptance in the CHS Athletic Program’s funding in the future. The Varsity team’s success this year shows that Clintonville soccer is alive and well.
