Nansemond-Suffolk Academy’s boys’ soccer team plans to improve on last year’s successful season. The team’s record of 7-7-1 and a fourth-place finish in the Tidewater Conference of Independent Schools were an improvement on their previous seasons, according to head coach Patrick Whelan. “We’re coming off one of our more successful seasons and looking to move forward,” Whelan said. “Over the last four or five years, we’ve been consistently getting better.” Despite the improvements over the last few seasons, Whelan was hesitant to have a concrete goal for the season, saying instead that he hopes to get the best out of the players and take each game individually.
“We don’t ever set out with a ‘championship or bust’ mindset,’” he said. “We want to get the best out of the guys and be competitive in every game we play.” To continue reading the article in The Suffolk News-Herald, please click here.
