“It feels great, we tried to get that win last year and we finally did it this year. It’s just an unreal feeling and it just can’t keep up,” said team captain Keith Reed.
“It was pretty cool to go to school with the band and the cheerleaders. It’s nice to have breakfast and to be recognized by the school for achieving what we did,” said Eddie Nowicki, the team goalkeeper. “Overall, it’s great to know that the school values your work.”
