2018 Class M State Champs Plainville boys soccer!
The Plainville High School Boys’ Soccer Team made history on November 18, 2018, winning its 1st State Championship in the history of the soccer program at Plainville High School. I don’t have the exact date the program started but I believe it's been over 50 years! They came into the State tourney with a record of just over .500 at 8-7-1 and were overlooked from the beginning. The regular season record was deceiving as they battled against multiple top teams in Class L and LL. They never got discouraged and took each loss as a learning experience and an opportunity for growth and preparation.
These boys came into the tournament as a #23 seed and had to knock off the #1, #2, and #3 seeds on their way to this 1st Championship in school history! They are the lowest seed to ever win Class M State Tournament and the 1st team to ever knock off the top 3 seeds to win the Title. They were the largest seeding difference to ever go head to head in the Finals, as well.
Not only are these boys State Champs but they are also role model students and citizens who volunteer their time with service work in the community. Their academic achievements go without question, as noticed during the Fall Sports Award Ceremony. The team is now looking for support from our local community to help offset the cost of their Championship rings, apparel, and plaques for each player. This support will help offset these costs.
The team is being recognized for their achievement on February 28th at Hawk's Landing Country Club. Any donation amount is GREATLY APPRECIATED and the boys really do appreciate all the support they received throughout the season.
Update: The team has been able to raise approx. half of the $12,000 goal as of today. They have roughly two more months to raise the balance. Thanks again everyone.
Thank you for all your support!
