MCS Soccer Season: Short on Games; Long on Team Spirit

Friday, November 20, 2015

It was a short season for Manhattan Country School’s varsity and junior varsity soccer teams. The varsity team played four games—winning two and losing two. Having fewer players on the field than their opponents proved to be a challenge at times, but Lee Solomon, the varsity soccer coach, says, “As a team, they played well together.”

Junior Varsity Soccer Coach Jermaine Lloyd offered the following reflection on his team’s season:

“Our young student athletes went 3-0, continuing the junior varsity tradition of high participation and strong team play. The children did a great job understanding their positions and executing their roles to present a true team. The defense was intense and effective. The offense was patient and selfless. The sideline support from families and friends kept everyone encouraged as we continue to learn from mistakes and one another. Thank you to Bank Street School for Children, City and Country School and the Stephen Gaynor School for their participation. We look forward to the Winter JV basketball season.”
