Kicking it into soccer season
Following a successful preliminary season, the RHS boys’ soccer team has big goals going into championship season. With only a few losses this year, the team is hyper-focused on playing well at districts.
“Hopefully we will be able to get a win at the district game. We have been improving the team so that we can consistently vie for that title,” said Blake Harper ‘19.
Harper has been playing soccer for three years and currently plays the goalkeeper position.
The Riverview soccer team has competed in 19 games so far this season and is fully prepared to take on their remaining matches.
“During the offseason, I play for Chargers SC to prepare for game season,” Harper ’19 said.
In addition to playing soccer in and out of school, Harper is a member of five national honor societies, including English, science, Mu Alpha Theta and Rho Kappa, and he is the treasurer of Academic Olympics and Speech and Debate, and president of Ping-Pong Club. As an active member in the Riverview community, Harper faces the difficult task of balancing school, activities and athletics.
“I try to balance school and athletics by attempting to manage my time well… and a lot of late nights,” Harper ‘19 added.
Furthermore, Harper is the recipient of the Industrious Award, an honor which is given out to deserving members of the soccer team.
With the district title in mind, the boys’ soccer team is hard at work and looking to outperform their ranks from last year.
