Trinity boys soccer ends season with annual banquet

It was a season to build on for the Trinity Lutheran boys soccer team, doubling its win total from last season and almost doubling its number of goals.

The Cougars went 6-11, compiling wins over Austin, Seton Catholic, Hauser, Lanesville twice and Brown County. Trinity lost in the sectional to Henryville, almost pulling off an amazing comeback to shock the Hornets.

The team held its annual banquet and awards on Sunday evening at Schneider Heating and Plumbing in Seymour.

Cougars head coach Todd Jack spoke about the season for Trinity.

“Hats off to these young men for their dedication this season,” Jack said. “They worked hard and will continue to do so, and I’m excited about the future of these players. These guys love the team and love the game and the sport.”

The boys soccer program has been getting better and better each season under Jack. He spoke about the growth and development of the Cougars in his three seasons as head coach.

“Our first season, we had zero wins and eight goals. Last season, we had three wins and 28 goals. This season, we finished with six wins and 51 goals. This has been something we’ve worked hard on to keep improving,” he said.

Jack spoke to his six seniors in Trenton Burton, Levi Pottschmidt, Andrew Lemming, Peyton Pollert, Zander Roggow and Connor Nichols, who have worked the program up to what it is now.

“See what three years did to this team. You guys are a huge part of that,” Jack said. “You’re leaving the program, paving the way for our best years. I can’t thank you all enough for the work you have put in.”

The coach also mentioned he’s excited to see the final season of their first four-year product in Kade Gillaspy, who will be a senior next year.

“Kade has taken this sport and ran with it,” Jack said. “The passion he shows warms our hearts. We’re looking forward to what he has in store for next season.”

The Cougars will now look to 2024.
