Mavericks soccer season is off to a great start, led by new varsity coach and SW Alum & Teacher Henry Garcia. Henry was a standout soccer player during his playing career at SW and finishing off his senior year as Champion of the TISSC League!
This year the Mavericks team is led by junior Angel Torres, senior, Issac Diaz, and senior, Anthony Quintanilla.
The record is 1-1-1. After a shocking opening loss to YP Brays Oaks the Mavericks bounced back with a 1-2 win vs YP West having two goals by Senior, Anthony Quintanilla. The Third and most impressive game was against YP Gulfton where both teams battled back and forth. After a sub-par first half, the Mavericks turned everything around, and instead of having a loss they fought hard and tied the match 2-2 still giving the Mavericks a chance to make the playoffs in a short HCAL season!
The next 3 games will be pivotal for the Mavericks. Sophomore Sensation, Carlos Paredes has stepped up major as Goalie with 14 saves so far in the season in his first year starting! The Mavericks next game is Thursday, vs YP Southside Giants!
