It was a great day for our local community.
Today, the East Lansing High School Boys Varsity Soccer Team won the Michigan State Soccer Championship (Division 2) by a score of 1-0, with the winning goal scored with 16 minutes remaining in the game. This is the school’s third state soccer championship, and first since 2002.
What makes this victory particularly meaningful to me is that it is the first state championship won by a team with players that I coached several years ago. At the time, it was clear that I had some very special players and I predicted this very outcome. Alas, my older son decided not to play soccer in high school, but I am pleased to see that a few of his former teammates continued and have had success. Next year will be their senior year, so hopefully I will get to post this again in about 12 months.
Congratulations! I am proud of you guys.
