2014 Virgin Valley Boys Soccer Capsule


Head coach: Michael Pletzke, second season

2013 record: 9-9-3 (4-6-2 Sunrise, fifth)

Returning lettermen (starters): Twelve (nine)

Top athletes: MF Gabe Medina (Sr.), F Moi Medina (Jr.), D Uli Flores (Jr.), F Efren Rodriguez (Jr.), D Sergio Pacheco (Sr.), D Geysson Murillo (Sr.), D Raphael DeSantiago (Jr.)

Outlook: The Bulldogs were young and struggled to find consistency last year, but with nine starters back, the team should be in better position to compete in the Sunrise League.

“Our core group is returning from last year,” Pletzke said. “Our mental maturity should be much improved over last season, and hopefully we can earn a spot in the playoffs.

“It will be an exciting season to see what we can actually accomplish when the players have the correct mindset. We have the ability, now can we put it to good use?”
