Wolverines salute the soccer season

The Wood River boys' soccer team saluted the season and coach Matt Phillips at the awards banquet held in the high school commons area Thursday night. Coach Phillips has announced his resignation.

"It has been a remarkable two years, with plenty of highs and lows," Phillips said. "The overall momentum is here. We created a winning attitude and almost salvaged a winning season (8-9-1) out of a 3-9-2 season from last year. I am proud of where we are and even more proud of where Luis Monjares (the incoming head coach) can take the team."

Phillips also recognized the remainder of his coaching staff, Dan VandenHeuvel and Eric Anderson.

"I look forward to a bright future of boys' soccer in the valley," he said.

All varsity players received a letter, including underclassmen Alexander MacMillan, Alejandro Garcia, Jake Freeman, and Nathan Moses, who appeared in a varsity district match. Junior varsity team members received a certificate of participation.
