WASHINGTON (WUSA 9) -- Coach Scott Waller said he hopes the 2014 soccer season will gain Gonzaga its 15th consecutive title in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference.
This season, Waller said the team has a new cast of players. He said out of the 24 players, 14 are new to the team.
"We recognize that we might not always have the best players," Waller said. "We aim to be the best team."
He said Gonzaga's soccer program has traditionally produced successful teams. Waller said this helps bring up successful players from JV to varsity.
"It's nice to have a successful program all around," Waller said.
Waller said this year's senior captain Philip Littleton will help act as leadership for the team. He said the seniors help talk to the younger players and help make it the best experience for them.
"They only have one chance to play soccer as seniors." Waller said. "They want to make it the best."
Once the season begins, Waller said the seniors will vote in a new captain.
"Choosing a new captain is team driven," Waller said. "It's a team decision."
Gonzaga'a first game is at 4 p.m., Sept. 2 at Loyola Blakefield.
