We had a GREAT soccer season this year, our men and women’s team did terrifically. It was the first time in history that either team made it to the final four! We do want to recognize our teams and our coach, Kerem Daser.

I did want to share with all a portion of a note that Kerem sent out where we recognized some of our outstanding players with awards at a banquet this week .

“We would like to congratulate both men’s and women’s soccer teams for accomplishing so much for the season!

For the women’s team Best attacker went to Freshman Kallie Balfour, Best Defender went to Sophomore Maggie Morris, MVP went to Freshman Jona Olafsdottir Most Improved went to Sophomore Jessica Qualls, and Coaches award went to Tess Heimerman.

For the men’s team Best Defender went to Omari Walker, Best Attacker went to Damieon Thomas, Coaches Award went to Lamin Singhateh and Most improved went to, GMC Prep alumni, Nathan Thompson.

All of the awards were voted on by the GMC soccer players except for the coaches award.

We would also like to recognize some of our women’s players for the academic achievement in the classroom. We are proud to announce that there were 3 women’s players who made a 4.0 for the quarter! Congratulations to Sophomore Maggie Morris, Sophomore Jessica Qualls and Freshman Coast Guard Cadet Tess Heierman! We are very proud of the effort the women’s team made in the classroom! There combined GPA as a team was a 3.16!

For the men’s team we would like to recognize some of our men’s players for their academic achievement in the classroom. We are proud to announce that 3 of our men’s players made a 4.0 for the quarter. Congratulations to Freshman Damieon Thomas, Cristobal Araya and Phillipe Kabenla. We would also like to congratulate Phillipe for earning the Math Award for the fall quarter.

It was a very tough season for our athletes having to travel so much for both away and some of our home games due to the construction on our soccer field. We are very proud of their accomplishments in the classroom. We would also like to thank the teacher who were able to work with our student athletes during our season!”
