First Presbyterian Christian Academy soccer players Joshua Khuns, MaKayla Alexander, Elise Letnaunchyn, Calvin Miclat and Demetrius Williams were recognized during the senior-night game against Frederica Academy on Tuesday at St. James Field.
However, the FPCA teams dropped their games to their Region 2-AA rivals.
The Lady ’Landers fell 1-0 in penalty kicks, and the Highlanders fell 5-1 after being tied 1-1 at the half.
According to FPCA coach Tom Sukaratana this is the first year since he took over the school’s soccer program that neither of his teams made the playoffs.
“Frederica was No. 1 in our region and look how well we played them,” he said, adding that next year his girls’ team will be poised for a region-playoff berth and another state-title run.
Sukaratana said he has several players slated to return next season who have plenty of soccer experience despite being young. The FPCA girls’ team will not have a senior player for the next two years.
The FPCA girls went
5-6 overall and 1-4 in the region this year, while the boys went 7-5 and 2-3. If the boys had beaten Frederica, they would have finished in second place. But the loss and the season’s point differential gave Bulloch Academy the advantage instead.
