Auggie Trevino is one happy coach. Ursuline's varsity soccer team is 4-0, and it opens district play Thursday against Parish. The home game starts at 5:30 p.m.
Pieces really started to fall into place for the Bears during a 2-0 win at Trinity Christian on November 5.
"We clicked as a team," said Trevino, who moved from junior varsity to varsity coach this season. "Erin Hurlburt scored with 23 minutes left in the first half, and Sofia Garcia scored on a set piece in the second half. It was a great feeling."
Here's what else Trevino had to say:
How is your first season at the helm going?
"Outstanding! I absolutely love this program. The coaches, players, and administration have been extremely positive."
What are the strengths of this year's team?
"There are a lot to list, but I love our communication and field of vision. These players have integrity and are loyal to each other. When someone is down or not playing at 100 percent, others step up and support that player. You see this at practice and in games."
With the team's depth, who are five players to watch?
"Just 5? How about all of them? I'm not kidding when I say we have talent all around. The beautiful part is everyone knows their strengths and weaknesses. Seniors Peyton Roberts, Anna Kate Coker, Sophia Garcia, Avery Engleman, and Adrienne Bland are all solid leaders."
What kind of coach are you?
"Great question! My coaching style is one that promotes positivity, balance, and patience. As a coaching staff, it's our passion to ensure each player knows that we care for them."
Any other hobbies?
"I absolutely love spending time with my beautiful bride of 26 years. I am just now learning to play the guitar, too, which I love."
