The Lakeland Hawks soccer program faced a lot of tough teams and dealt with an unusual amount of adversity and competition this season. The Hawks boys soccer team finished the 2021 fall season with a record of 1-10-2. The Hawks played a high level of competition in each game and fought with full strength throughout the length of the season. 

When referring to the season, senior Brayden Munson said, “We didn’t start off very well because we played a lot of really tough competition in the first few games. Those losses kicked us into gear, and we started to do a lot better, specifically in our games against Moscow and Timberlake. Overall, the season was pretty great, and I had an awesome senior season as a part of this team.” 

Hayden Jonas also had something to add about the season and said, “It was only my freshman year, and even though we didn’t win too many games, I was proud of how we played, and I’m looking forward to next season.” He mentioned that he will be training a lot in the offseason to try to have the best production possible next year.”

Both Munson and Jonas agreed that the win against Timberlake was the season’s high point for the Hawks. 

The Lady Hawks finished their season out with a hard fought game in an 8-0 loss to the Moscow Lady Bears. The Lady Hawks finished their first season under head coach Kevin Rogge with a record of 1-9. Although many of the games that the Lady Hawks played gave them quite a bit of competition, many of the girls agreed that coach Rogge was definitely a huge help and fantastic coach for the team. 

Caroline Gallus said, “Rogge is great. Every game was better than the last because we have improved so much since tryouts, and we owe a lot of that to coach Rogge”.

Chloe Charvier-Solilet, a junior for the Lakeland Lady Hawks soccer team, said, “Even though we lost by a lot, I think the district game against Moscow was our best game of the year.” She also mentioned that she is very excited for next year and is looking forward to getting back out on the pitch.

The Lakeland Lady Hawks pushed themselves to finish the season off strong and overall played a very impressive season of soccer. Both the girls and boys soccer teams had seasons to remember, and each got their own taste of sweet victory.
