Soccer team wraps up season

After losing seven seniors, a coach, and switching conferences, Hamilton varsity soccer is going through a season of change.

For many of the players this was their first year on varsity. It is also the first year for Coach Robinson.

“We are a young team,” sophomore R.J. Flowers said.

The team played Unity Christian Wed. October 1 and lost 0-8. They also played Mon. October 6 against Byron Center and won 2-0. On Wed. October 8 the team played Wyoming Rogers and won 6-3.

The team’s overall record was 8-12. Though the team has had some hard losses, like the overtime loss to Wyoming Park, they have also had some big wins, like the game against Grandville.

“Soccer’s a crazy sport like that,” Coach Robinson said, “any team can win on any given day.”

This year Hamilton switched to the O.K. Green Conference. (see related story on page D1.

The soccer team is now playing teams they didn’t usually play before. They are looking forward to making new rivals.

“I’d like Holland Christian to be our top rival due to their proximity and talent level,” Coach Robinson said.

The team played a hard match against Wayland falling just short of a win.

The team will lose many  players due to graduation.

“It was a tough season but our team stayed strong, I’m going to miss Hamilton Soccer,” said senior Maison De Jonge.
