To celebrate the 2018-2019 season, Verbum Dei’s soccer teams held their annual soccer banquet on Thursday, March 28, in the Multi Purpose Room (MPR).
Head coach Oscar Rosa, designs and plans the soccer banquet every year to give seniors and families a great and memorable experience.
The annual event is held in the MPR most every year; however, last year it was held in the gym because basketball and soccer both collaborated on the event. This year it was no longer a joint event because too much time was spent in setting up the event and cleaning up after the event.
This year, Rosa, made sure both coach, Edwin Suro, and the nine varsity senior were dismissed with honor. As in years past, all-you-can-eat tacos were served to players and families prior to the award and highlight ceremony.
Suro received a framed picture of the 2018-2019 roster while seniors received Gatorade bottles with their names and signatures of the team players.
