Last Friday, all three teams joined together, with parents, for one final outing…this time to celebrate the 2017 season.
Coach Schmidt and (Sam) Anderson celebrated their team’s 7-win season. Cole Williams was announced as the Fresh-Soph team’s Rookie of the Year. Michael Trunnell was named the team’s Most Improved Player. Jake Voss and Zach Galvin were named Dual/Co Most Outstanding Players. And Kyle Spaete was given the Coaches Choice Award.
Coach (Clark) Anderson introduced the Jr Varsity team members, and gave praises to the players, parents, and others that made his first year so enjoyable and memorable. The JV team also finished with 7 wins on the season.
The Varsity season was also summarized, and individuals were recognized with Team Awards, All-Metro, and All-Conference selections. See table with awards below. Any All-State awards will be announced in mid/late June.
Additionally, at the end of the meeting, Coach (Sam) Anderson announced that this was his final season on the sidelines. As many people know, he and his wife Kirstin are expecting their first baby, any day. And while being a new Dad presents its own challenges, so does starting a new church. Sam is the Student Ministry Leader for Veritas Cedar Rapids, and his workload has grown with the growth of the church. Best wishes to Sam and his family, we appreciate all that he has done for our program over the last 4 years.
