The Fauquier soccer teams are starting fresh. Principal Kraig Kelican and activities director Mark Ott decided to change the soccer coaches for this upcoming spring season.

Ott is working to improve the soccer program at FHS. His goal for this year is to have coaches that will increase participation and sportsmanship.

As activities director, Ott plans to work with coaches that will not only help them get better at soccer but become better people. Although it is not all about winning, Ott hopes that new coaching methods and fresh faces will lead the soccer teams to more wins. Ott has not decided who the coaches are going to be yet, but he is looking for someone who is going to meet these expectations.
Although Rich Ashley was greatly loved by all the soccer players, the team didn’t win any games last season. Junior Emma Anderson said, “I believe getting a new coach could aid us in winning games. However it depends on the team.”

The soccer players are on the edge of their seats wanting to know who the new coaches are going to be. Updates on the new soccer positions will be known when they have been chosen.
