JV Gold Soccer: a season in review


Last season, the Jesuit High School Junior Varsity Gold Soccer team had a nearly perfect season by going 14-1. Their only loss was to Davis High School 0-1.

“They beat us at our place, but we beat them at their place,” said Head Coach Joshua Palone ‘99.

The team owes its success to the high skill level of their players. This meant that tryouts were a very important part of the season.

“We have try outs and we get new players from the Freshmen class”,  Coach Palone said. “We might keep players from last year, but we mostly get new players which is a lot of fun, but comes with a lot of hard work.”

Jesuit soccer is looking for players who have played for a competitive team, are ready to play for a high school, and are fit to play. The Jesuit Junior Varsity Gold Soccer Team gets many players from soccer clubs such as Union, San Juan, Sac United and Granite Bay.

Coach Palone stated Jesuit usually gets these team players because the clubs are close to Jesuit and play at a high skill level.Their formations are also like Jesuit’s Obviously, Jesuit’s tactics and formations worked out for them for last season. And they should keep these for next year, when they hope to defend their home field against Davis.
