Fall sports have come to a close and coaches and athletes look back upon their season to reflect and consider future plans.

Football, soccer and volleyball players start the school year already in season and end in October.  

The football team started its season with high goals trying to be undefeated.  Each team member and coach sets high standards for each person and seem very happy towards their progress so far. Players remember highlights of the season.

“Probably the Logan game; we had an amazing impact during the first quarter,” Tyson Reid said. 

“Our overall team efficiency this season has been high, although with multiple injuries including three concussions, two sprain ankles and one recent concussion,” ninth grader Christopher Seward said. “The best moment for me this year is probably the Logan game, we had an amazing game with two touchdowns, two interceptions and one amazing fumble, running 80 yards.”

This week the team will continue toward their record goal.

“Everyone is trying their hardest to achieve to be the first Altoona team in history to go 9-1,” Luciano said.

Boys’ soccer athletes have played this fall as well. The girls’ team went undefeated for the third year in a row.

“This season hasn’t been going this well,” Coach Pat McDowell said. “Although this season had a lot of great teamwork and that is what I am most proud of. This season we had no injuries with this being a beginning team, even after that we had some good matches with the team being very happy.” 

With volleyball already being over, the varsity team knows their record of  7-4.

“This season we were very lucky not to have any injuries of any sorts,” Coach Makenzie Negri said. “My favorite moment for the varsity team was playing Park Forest, and going 6 games against Park Forest.”
