Led by new Athletic Director Scott Kennedy, the men’s
Varsity soccer team improved from the 2014-15 season,
defeating opponents who had not been beaten in years.
The Varsity team missed the North Coast Section (NCS)
playoffs by only one point, and the Junior Varsity team
finished second place in the JV Jamboree tournament.
The women’s Varsity team, also led by Coach Ken-
nedy, went 9-5 in the league, earning them a spot in the
league playoffs and a place in the NCS playoffs. They
played a hard game against undefeated league opponent
Drew and lost 2-1 in extra time. We look forward to fur-
ther success this year, with a great group of young talent
making up the roster.
At the middle school level, the boy’s Varsity soccer team
captured the first ever Bay Area Interscholastic Athletic
League (BAIAL) soccer championship, defeating San
Francisco Day 2-0 in the championship game. The girls
team competed very well against older and bigger competition, never giving up regardless of score or opponent. “Our goal was to instill in the girls the work ethic
and tactical soccer knowledge for them to be successful
in future years at French American and International,”
said Coach Ian Noh.
