Boys' teams seek to net soccer titles

(Continued)

“The HCC is always a great challenge and this year will be no different,” Schmidt said. “Brownsburg, Noblesville, Westfield, Zionsville, HSE, and Fishers are not only tough conference foes, but also among the top teams in the state every year. It will be very impressive whichever team wins the HCC this year.”

Locke and Zorniger will hold down the defensive back line with sophomore Tyler Shanahan in goal. Shanahan has big shoes to fill, as the last three Avon keepers have been all-state goalies. Schmidt said Tyler “has the potential to develop into that type of player.”

Kleyn, and seniors Quinton Bridegroom, Jonathon Kopp, and Brandon Williams, lead a potent offensive attack for the Orioles.

“Those four are outstanding attacking players who will be looked to carry much of the scoring load,” Schmidt said.

Bridegroom, Kopp and Zorniger will handle captains duties for the Orioles.

“Our team has tremendous experience and has been able to experience a lot of situations to help prepare them for this year,” Schmidt said. “This team is technically strong and should be an outstanding possession team with the ability to also strike quickly in counter opportunities. We should have a very solid back line that will be tough for opponents to break down.”

Plainfield

When Plainfield coach David Knueve took over the Plainfield boys’ soccer program a few years ago, he did so knowing it would take some time to match his vision. Now that a couple of graduating classes have cycled through, Knueve feels more confident than ever about the direction Plainfield soccer is heading.

Since the Quakers have built a solid base, distinct improvements should be on the horizon.

“The program is in great shape with leaders throughout,” Knueve said. “Both the present and the future look really bright for Plainfield soccer.”
