Greenhill Boys Soccer has opened up their seasons with two wins, one loss and one tie, as they now look to their upcoming tournament this week.

Their upcoming tournament will be played at St. Thomas High School in Houston, taking twenty-four boys to Houston that include 11 starters and 13 subs.

The team is quite different this year, with the loss of nine seniors; however, Boys Varsity Soccer Coach Greg Krauss looks to focus “on the 44 Upper School students who are in the program this year.”

The team is comprised of the starting Varsity team and a junior varsity reserve team. The JV-reserve team serves as reserves for varsity, instead of being delegated to a completely separate team. While JV does have separate games, the idea enforces that players should be prepared to play in a varsity game if need be. According to Krauss, this promotes a growth mindset, allowing for a flowing depth chart.

With the loss of the seniors, the team chemistry is different. However, sophomore Gabriel Shiloh claims that it is “a bit better, but we lost many seniors.”

Coach Krauss praises his current seniors, saying that seniors Cole Ashley and Matias Zac have stepped into leadership positions.
