The Bradwell Institute Tigers men and women’s soccer season may be over, but for some players the accolades to their successful season are still coming in.
“This is probably the most players from our teams ever chosen for the region teams,” coach Gregory Cooke said, “and the first time we had two players gain two of the three top awards.”
Cooke said Allison Burrill, made the women’s All-Region Team and Chris Schuster, Ethan Deemer, Brian Shanken, Mark McGuire and Josh Olsen made the men’s All-Region.
In addition Deemer received the highest defensive award, being named Defensive Player of the Year for the region.
“Chris Shuster received the highest award from the region by winning MVP for the region,” Cooke said. “To my knowledge this is the first time a sophomore has ever won this award.”
Both squads had an impressive season.
The Lady Tigers turned their record around this year, becoming competitive enough to play and stand against some of the toughest teams in 3-AAAAA.
The men made it to the first round of playoffs before losing in double-overtime to Colquitt County at home.
With most of the roster pledging to return next season the men are poised for another shot at state, while the ladies plan to continue improving their record.
