Boca Raton Soccer Wins 13th Consecutive District Title
When the Bobcats entered the District 11-5A tournament, they were the underdogs.
With a 8-8-3 record, not many expected the sixth-seed Bobcats to make a run at their 13th straight District title, however the Bobcats saved their best soccer for the postseason, going 3-0 in the tournament and beating number one ranked Palm Beach Central 2-1 on Friday night.
“This year has been different from the other years,” explained Junior Mark Faeth. “We came into the tournament with a averaged record, unlike previous years. But we have been confident in our abilities from the start of the season.”
Boca Raton Coach, Marcelo Castillo, who has been with the team for 10 years, was recently named the 2014 National Federation of High School Associations (NFHS) Coches Association Coach of the Year.
Boca Raton moves on to host the District 12-5A runner-up in Thursday’s regional quarterfinals.
