Boys' teams seek to net soccer titles


However, the Plainfield coach understands improvement comes gradually.

“Our goal is to get better each day,” Knueve said.

Helping the team towards their goals are eight seniors. Jeff Todd, Riley Wildeman, Mason Fischer, Nate Dunn, Andrew Buckner, Jonah Bunch, Scott Cope and Kaleb Preston look to set the tone for Plainfield.

“They will bring direction, leadership and talent to the team,” Knueve said. “These seniors will be our leaders.”

Much like Plainfield bringing in Knueve to strengthen its soccer program, several Mid-State Conferences have done the same, making for stiffer conference competition.

Plainfield finished third in the Mid-State last season and tallied an 8-9 overall record.

“In the past couple of years the conference has added some really good coaches, and their dedication to the sport has brought about good competition,” Knueve said. “The conference winner will have worked hard to earn it. It will take hard work, great leadership, and skill to improve from last season.”

Fischer and junior Lucas Kesterson garnered all-conference honors last season.

“Their experience and skill are extremely valuable to the team,” Knueve said.

Todd, who manned the pipes last season, returns in goal for the Quakers.

“He is a talented young man due to his work ethic and love of the game,” Knueve said.

Adding to the Quakers’ talent this season, and adding some varsity minutes under their belts, are sophomore Connor Cutler and freshman Eric Horsting.


Among one of the toughest teams in Indiana on a yearly basis, Brownsburg again looks to be one of the top teams in the area and state.

The Bulldogs finished 12-3-1 last season, winning seven of their last nine games before a loss in the sectional final to conference and county rival Avon. Brownsburg finished tied for second in the Hoosier Crossroads Conference with Avon and Noblesville, each team sharing a 6-2-1 record.
