Kavaliers showing incremental improvement

The Kenston Forest School varsity coed soccer team has started off the 2018 season struggling, but progress is being made.

“We’ve been slowly getting better,” Co-Head Coach Alex Waite said. “Obviously you can’t just turn around a program overnight, but each week is getting better, each game’s getting better. The score might not be showing it sometimes, but definitely as a team, we’re improving.”

The Kavaliers are 0-5 after facing host Fuqua School, host Brunswick Academy, host Southampton Academy, visiting Richmond Christian School and visiting Isle of Wight Academy.

Waite said his team’s best game so far came against rival Brunswick on March 28. He knew his players were eager to play the Vikings, and the game took place at Brunswick Academy.

“The fans were also into it,” Waite said. “… We had plenty of opportunities to score that game.”

Though Brunswick won 5-1, Zach Dunavant made the most of one of those opportunities to score, putting a shot in the net.

The Kavaliers return from spring break Monday when they visit Blessed Sacrament Huguenot Catholic School at 5:30 p.m.
