Men's Soccer Excited for Future Following Successful Spring
GREEN BAY, Wis. – The Green Bay men's soccer program recently wrapped up a successful spring season, one that offered promise for the future. The squad went unbeaten in five of its six matches, a record highlighted by a win over Northwestern and a draw with Marquette.
"This spring was another positive step in the right direction for our young team. We seamlessly picked up where we left off this fall. We went 3-1-2, started seven to eight freshmen and went with a different lineup every match,” head coach Jeremy Bonomo said.
The Phoenix showed a lot of potential in the 2016 season with one of the younger rosters in the nation and continued to make strides in the spring season. Freshman Andre Baires earned second-team all-conference this past season and was once again a solid performer for the team.
Another positive for the Phoenix program was Audi Jepson returning to the field and making an immediate impact after not playing since 2015 due to injuries. Newcomers Adam Mansa and transfer Brady Lenius adapted nicely to Green Bay's style of play and JT Spath proved to be a nice addition to the back line.
“With our young core coming together, we are now starting to see results. Getting points versus Big Ten and Big East teams on the road is something our program can be proud of and build on moving forward. There is still much to prove, and I looking forward to what our team has to offer come the fall of 2017,” said Bonomo.
Green Bay will have to wait a few months before returning to the field as a team but if the spring was any indication of what's to come, the future is bright for the men's soccer program.
