Hurricane Student-Athletes Are Honored
By Marcus Reynolds, PT, DPT, CSCS
Teays Physical Therapy Center, Inc., is pleased to present this week’s male Gamer of the Week to Putnam County’s own Hurricane High School Boy’s Soccer Team.
The Redskins boy’s soccer team captured their second state championship last week as they beat Wheeling Park High School by a final score of 2-0 at Beckley’s YMCA Paul Cline’s Memorial Youth Sport Complex.
Hurricane was able to halt a strong charge by Wheeling Park early on and then controlled the possession of the ball for the majority of the game.
Senior Jackson Snavely scored two goals, for the Redskins, to help earn them the victory while the Hurricane defense and an ounce of luck lead them the rest of the way.
When Head Soccer Coach Jim Dagostine was asked about his team’s victory he replies, ‘’They refused to lose and they had the support of the community behind them all season. You could just sense their eagerness and confidence once sectional play began and it carried onward toward the state championship final. It was at total team effort from the start to the finish of the season, and I’m glad the boys took this old man along for the ride. Go Redskins.’’
Hurricane ended the 2017 season with a 19-1-4 record on top of a very competitive AAA class in West Virginia and looks forward to defending their crown for the 2018 season.
Congratulations to our local standout team!
