IAHSSCA recognizes two LM players

Now that the season has come to a close, the Iowa High School Soccer Coaches Association has released its All-State Teams and Senior All-Star Game participants.  Linn-Mar players were included on both lists.

Noah Martin will participate in the IAHSSCA Senior All-Star game, this Saturday, at Valley Stadium in Des Moines. He will join 17 other players (5 from the MVC) on the East Team, which will be coached by Curt Lewis, head coach at CR Prairie.  Noah led the Lions in minutes played, this season, and scored two goals from his center back position, including the game-winning goal against eventual State Champs, Iowa City West. More details about the All-Star game can be found here.  Congratulations Noah!

Danny Peak has been recognized by the IAHSSCA, and coaches from across the state, by being named to the 2017 3A All-State Team.  Danny is recognized as a member of the Honorable Mention team, and is one of 13 MVC players in class 3A. Danny was the offensive, statistical leader for the Lions, this season, scoring 5 goals and assisting on 7 more. Danny had one game-winning goal (against Cedar Falls), and had a goal in each of the three big wins in mid-April versus ranked opponents Iowa City West, CR Washington, and CR Xavier.  He also had the game-winning assist(to Martin) in the win over West. The full list of All-State players can be found here.

We also want to wish “Good Luck” to two graduating seniors who will be continuing their soccer-playing careers at the next level.  Noah Martin will play at Wartburg College, in Waverly, IA.  Cody Ritter will continue at Indian Hills Community College, in Ottumwa, IA. Info about other Lions who played in college can be found here.

End of Season Awards Announced

Last Friday, all three teams joined together, with parents, for one final outing…this time to celebrate the 2017 season.

Coach Schmidt and (Sam) Anderson celebrated their team’s 7-win season.  Cole Williams was announced as the Fresh-Soph team’s Rookie of the Year. Michael Trunnell was named the team’s Most Improved Player. Jake Voss and Zach Galvin were named Dual/Co Most Outstanding Players. And Kyle Spaete was given the Coaches Choice Award.

Coach (Clark) Anderson introduced the Jr Varsity team members, and gave praises to the players, parents, and others that made his first year so enjoyable and memorable.  The JV team also finished with 7 wins on the season.

The Varsity season was also summarized, and individuals were recognized with Team Awards, All-Metro, and All-Conference selections.  See table with awards below. Any All-State awards will be announced in mid/late June.

Additionally, at the end of the meeting, Coach (Sam) Anderson announced that this was his final season on the sidelines.  As many people know, he and his wife Kirstin are expecting their first baby, any day.  And while being a new Dad presents its own challenges, so does starting a new church.  Sam is the Student Ministry Leader for Veritas Cedar Rapids, and his workload has grown with the growth of the church. Best wishes to Sam and his family, we appreciate all that he has done for our program over the last 4 years.
