SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ – The South Brunswick High School boys soccer team is not being shy about where they expect to end up this season.

With another Greater Middlesex Conference Red Division title, at the very least.

“We try each year to build on the previous year. Last year's team won the Red Division. We obviously would like to do that again,” head coach Christopher Hayston said. “We also try to take the experiences, good or bad, from the previous season and learn from them. We take our experience from last year's county and state tournaments and use it to go even farther this year.”

Hayston said that he and Assistant Varsity Coach Jeff King feel very good about the team’s chances this year with 13 returning varsity players

“I believe we have the opportunity to be very successful this year,” he said. “Both goalkeepers return from last year’s division championship team.  That experience combined with their improvement from last year gives us two goalies that we can be confident with.”

The returning varsity players are; Nasser Aamer, Russ Baskin, Chris Bobev, Kyle DeGroff, Jake Foeldes, Pat Grudnik, Paul Grudnik, Jarret Kean, Keiler Knapp, Sean Ray, Jermaine Small, Arvind Swaminathan and Ronaldo Solano.

“In the back, both outside defenders return for their third year on varsity.  While we have to replace both center backs from last year’s team, I believe we have some talented players that will be able to fill those roles, Hayston said. “Our midfield is the deepest part of our team were we could see anywhere from 8-9 players contribute to the team’s success.”

In addition to the returning players, some new blood may also fuel the team’s success.

The new players are; Koonj Patel, Tyler White, Max Antisell, Sergio Cabellero, Raam Chinnaya, Steve Disario, Nick Hoffman, Kevin Nunez, Will Robinson, Kunal Thakral, Anirudth Vemupalli, Dylan Inguardi and Christos Lolas.

Hayston said he is also expecting a good year for the junior varsity and freshmen teams under the leadership of Nick Gazzale and Scott McManus respectively.

“I think we have a good junior varsity team and one of our deepest and most talented freshman classes since this year's seniors were freshman,” he said. “Our future looks bright and our program has a lot to be excited about.”

The team’s schedule can be found online here.
