SCHUYLER – It’s a wrap for the Schuyler Central High School soccer team until next year.
The Warriors made an appearance in the post season despite early questionable situations when the season kicked off.
“I don’t know if a lot of people really believed outside our coaches and our team that we would be able to get back to that level of soccer,” Schuyler head coach Lyndon Beebe said.
The team began the state tournament with a 2-0 victory over Lutheran/Norfolk Catholic and its season ended after dropping the game against South Sioux City 1-0.
Although they didn’t return to Schuyler with a state title, Beebe said the experience was well worth it.
“It was pretty gratifying for everyone involved that we were able to do that,” Beebe added.
The team not only made a state appearance but also set a record for the most wins in a season.
“There was just a lot of positives and it just rolled by really fast but it was really a big things for us.. It was important for our school,” Beebe said.
In addition to their accomplishments, Schuyler won the the Sportsmanship Award from the Nebraska Coaches Association.
Moving forward from state and looking far into the next season, the team has already set some goals.
“One was strength. We’re going to have to get a little bit stronger to compete with some of those bigger teams,” Beebe explained.
After making another state appearance, setting records and bringing joy to their community, Beebe said there is no doubt this season will be remembered.
