The boys’ soccer team won its first Channel League title since 1983 by dominating league play: they finished league undefeated with a record of 6-0-2. The Chargers already had clinched the title by the time they went into the last game against San Marcos High School. This included two victories over rival Santa Barbara High School.

“It felt great making history going undefeated in league,” said junior soccer player JC Ruiz. “We had great support overall and I feel like that made us want it more.”

Several Chargers said they felt like all their hard work certainly paid off.

“The hard work for four years has been a blessing, and I’m happy I can finish off my high school career with a championship,” said senior soccer player Nathan Garcia. For a variety of reasons, the Chargers started off the season 2-4-1 without senior captain Tim Heiduk and junior Manny Nwosu. Both were the top goal-scorers for the Chargers last year. With them on the field, the Chargers went 9-3-4 and finished the 2014-2015 season 11-7-5.

The Chargers accomplished something they haven’t since 1983. The 1983 team won the CIF southern section championship. The Chargers this year fell short against Los Alamitos in the same competition with a score of 1-0. Senior Alex Mathews saved two consecutive penalty kicks. But even with that one loss, the Chargers still had a wildly successful season.

“I was happy and proud for sticking with it and accomplishing something that hasn’t been done since 1983,” said head coach Matt York. “It was a great moment for our program and all of the alumni.”
