Boys' Soccer Coach of the Year Sherando's Pat Anderson The Winchester Star for the fourth time and the first time in two years led the Warriors to a 15 3 1 season and their first coach outlet naples fl region tournament berth in two years, where Sherando lost to eventual state champion Kettle Run in the 4A West Region quarterfinals.
(The Cougars scored twice in the last three minutes to break a 1 1 tie and win 3 1.) The Warriors won the Conference 21 West regular season title with a 4 0 1 record and the Northwestern District title with a 7 0 1 record. After losing its first game, Sherando went on a 14 game winning streak. Q. Sherando had eight starters and 18 total players coming back this year. How did this season go compared to your preseason expectations? Anderson: We had lofty expecations knowing that we had so many back. We went 7 8 2 and kind of took our lumps last year. Glass to try to [upgrade] who coach outlet sale 6 foot we were playing against, because those guys always make it to their region setting. We hoped last year would benefit us this year. And all the players bought into the process, which was nice. The offseason workouts, they were there, they were playing [indoor] futsal, working out, getting stronger. They were all lifting weights at some point. We knew we had something special, the coaching staff just didn't want to mess it up. We didn't want to overthink the process. Q. What stands out about this season? Anderson: With this group, you saw the team first concept. They sacrificed for each other. If someone had an off game and somebody else shined and that person would get a little bit more playing time, they didn't get catty toward each other. The guys were here for the team, not the individual person. This team also had a great work ethic. [The coaches] would show up to practice, and they'd already be out on a nice run. We didn't have to tell them to do that. They knew it was time to work as soon as they got to the field. Q. Any particular game that you thought was significantly important? Anderson: I thought Broad Run the first time was important (a 1 0 win on the road on March 30) because we had such a bad run against them [in past years], and it was coach wallet usa outlet good to see we could compete against a good 5A team like that. We played at Harrisonburg the day before [a 3 1 win], so beating Broad Run on the second day of a back to back gave the kids a good mind set. They could beat a quality team on any given night. Anderson: There's no real specific moment. This team came out successful regardless of what the elements were, where we were, who we were playing. When we went on that 14 game [winning streak], they never mentioned the streak. We just kept playing soccer, and we were successful. It was like it was habit forming, which was good. Anderson: The Kettle Run game. (With the score 1 1, Sherando had an excellent chance to take the lead when Sean Buono crossed the ball to Nic Craig in the box with seven minutes left, but Kettle Run goalkeeper Michael Otooni made an athletic save to tip Craig's volley shot over the crossbar.) Everything was right on that play. Nic did his job right, Sean did his job right, [midfielder] Max [Polio] did his job right. We had all these guys in the right position. Even their coach said their keeper made a phenomenal save, and then when they scored to go up that was the dagger. Our players worked so hard, and we knew we had the potential to play with any team in the state. We scrimmaged Kettle Run [in the preseason and beat them in a 40 minute game]. It was tough, but the relationships we've built, there's always that life long aspect. It was a good, wholesome group.
