Throughout a season of long practices and tough Conference games, the Marian Boys’ Soccer Team faced every challenge with hard work, dedication, and perseverance. The East Suburban Catholic Conference they play in is one of the most difficult in the entire state of Illinois. No matter what the weather, the boys pushed through to pull out numerous wins against schools such as Notre Dame and Joliet Catholic. One of the varsity boys’ best games was against Marian Catholic, scoring eight goals against the team at a ten o’clock game on an early Saturday morning at Peter Baker Stadium. The JV team also had a successful year, winning six overall games for the Hurricanes.

The long bus rides and daily practices helped the boys bond together as a team. Watching both teams play, the crowd could see the connection between the players and their coaches.  

The boys ended their season during the Class 2A Regional at Woodstock High School. Senior Josh Smith finished off his high school career with the last two goals of the season for the Hurricanes.

“The game will always be with me, it always has and it definitely always will. I’m grateful for the many memories and life lessons soccer has taught me. I will forever remember the special moment of ending my career alongside my best friends, wearing Marian red with the company of my family and friends,” said Josh Smith after he embraced in hugs at his last soccer game.

The varsity team will send off eleven seniors this year. The Marian soccer community would like to thank these seniors for their dedication to the team for the past four years, and all the players will be very missed.
