Young Uvaldeans gain experience
The 2019 Texas high school soccer season was a season of adversity for the Uvalde Coyotes soccer program.
Going into the start of the season, the Coyotes faced the challenges of playing in a tougher new district with an inexperienced group of varsity players.
They also began the 2019 campaign with a new head coach in Javier Sanchez.
“We faced many challenges. The season was filled with both positives and negatives,” said Coach Sanchez.
“Early on, we started out very strong. We had a great formation and lineup woking together. We were just getting comfortable with communication and strategy, but then we lost some personnel because of grades and we lost others because of injuries,” said Sanchez. “After that, our lineup and our strategy was constantly changing because of the personnel we had available.”
As a result of having to play a makeshift lineup, the Coyotes did not win many matches last soccer season, but the younger players received a lot of valuable playing time.
