The varsity boys soccer team made LCM history this year by being the first boys soccer team to go undefeated in district play. After clinching a district championship, the team will face Lufkin Hudson in the Bi-District round of playoffs at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 29.

Team leaders Seth Brown, Samir Zambrano and Noah Hammer helped lead their team to the district champions title by keeping them motivated and working together as a unit.

At the beginning of the season, Hammer and the other team leaders made sure everyone on the team was mentally focused and prepared.

“At the start of the year, we sat down as a team and decided the goal was to become district champs,” Hammer said. “We prepared for district by practicing hard and going into preseason with the mind set of claiming the title of champs.” 

After lots of practice and dedication, the players still had mixed emotions. Some were ready to go in and score a win and others were nervous they wouldn’t claim the title they were working hard to achieve.

“I’m always nervous before games,” Brown said. “But once I get in the game and start to play my nerves die down and I get more focused on playing.”

The hard work paid off and the boys not only reached their goal, but they also made soccer history.

“My team had everything to do with achieving these goals,” Hammer said. “Words cannot describe the feeling when you work as hard as this team did. It was all worth it.”

As some of the team leaders will be graduating this year, this season had a major impact on them and helped them make lifelong memories.

“After the tears of joy we all went to Buffalo Wild Wings and just enjoyed each other’s company,” Hammer said after their latest big win. “They are the best family a senior could ask for.”
