A Great Season for Boys Soccer Team

The Baruch Boys varsity soccer team, coached by Mr Breman, concluded a great season in late October. The team finished with nine wins and only three losses and scored a total of 59 goals throughout the course of the season. With their winning record, the team also qualified for the playoffs which included dozens of teams across New York City who competed against each other in a tournament-style matchup. The Baruch team ranked 17th coming into this playoff competition and managed to make it through three tough and well-fought rounds of the postseason.
The team consisted of 20 Baruchian athletes from all four grades, each contributing to their highly accomplished season. In particular one player Kenneth Perry, who is a Junior at Baruch High School, played an enormous role and contributed a lot to this great team.

Over the course of the 15 matches that the Baruch team played, Kenneth managed to score 18 goals and accumulated 12 assists. This amazing season by Kenneth contributed to the phenomenal record that the boy’s soccer team had this year and helped allow for the team to qualify for the playoffs. Kenneth started playing soccer at the age of four and competed in soccer leagues throughout his life. He was first introduced to the sport by his dad and began to watch Arsenal games with him at an early age.

A Soccer Player that inspires Kenneth is Lionel Messi because he is the one of the greatest soccer players of all time and always puts in his best effort whenever he’s out playing, which is something that he strives to do as well. “Being an athlete makes you work harder along with understanding concepts like leadership and teamwork.” Overall Kenneth said that this was one of his best seasons playing as a part of the Baruch team. Kenneth’s biggest takeaway from this season is that the team as a whole have significantly improved from our two previous seasons when it comes to their talent and their mindset. “Next season is going to be very fun and I’m very much looking forward to it,” Kenneth said.
