City High Soccer has been excellent in the past few years. Varsity took second place at the state tournament and the 9th/10th grade team has had similar success. The Little Hawks freshman and sophomore team quietly won the MVC last season and looks to continue their winning ways. Coach Troy Osborn, the 9th/10th is confident they can replicate their prosperities.

“We have a great group of guys and I think it is definitely possible [that the team can win the MVC again],” Osborn said.

The team will face some tough opposition this year. Many returning players like Joe Cermak ‘19 and Dylan Proeller ‘19 hope to lead the team to another MVC championship. Proeller thought this year’s team had a lot of potential.

“I honestly don’t think I will have to do a lot of leading this season,” he said. “This team is full of talent and I think if we keep working we could have an amazing season.”

The Little Hawks put on a show in their first scrimmage, winning 10-0 against Regina, while flexing this year’s new mercy rule. Some new faces scored for the team, including Beni Sita ‘20, who netted a hat trick. Coach Osborn was very impressed with the team’s performance and is hopeful it can continue into the regular season even with the Little Hawk’s having a target on their back.

City’s first game will be next Tuesday, April 11, against Jefferson at City High’s turf field. The Little Hawks will have their hands full with a talented and highly motivated Jefferson team. There are high expectations for the freshman and sophomores this season and the team is excited to face the challenges head on.

“I have high hopes,” Proeller said. “There are a lot of really good freshman this year that will contribute to a very good season.”
