The Argyle Eagle soccer team, led by head coach Coach Lundy, made school history this past season, coming short in the state semi-final game against the Progresso Red Ants.

“This was my third year playing for Argyle and not once have I ever seen the team get along this well.” Junior Bryce Pilawski said. “Whether it was team dinners or just sitting in the locker room, we spent a lot of our time together and it really brought us closer on the field.”

Argyle was looking to make a come back after the Eagles fell short in the second round of playoffs during the 2015 season.

“Entering the playoffs we were playing really well and had a lot of confidence.” Senior Drew Estrada said. “Once we won the first playoff game we knew that if we played to our potential that we would be hard to beat.”

Head coach Daniel Lundy is going on his fifth year as a head coach for boys soccer and a defensive line coach for football.

“Coach Lundy did a really good job at keeping the team well-rounded this year.” Pilawski said. “He made sure that we wouldn’t only focus on one thing, but rather train for all areas of the team.”

Coach Lundy earned coach of the year for the district alongside Drew Estrada who earned MVP honors.

“Without Coach Lundy, we would have never made a playoff run.” Estrada said. “He doesn’t get enough recognition for the time and effort he puts into the soccer program. He really cares about all of his players and will do anything for us. On top of that, he’s a really good coach and knows a lot about the game.”

Not only is this a team with talent hard to beat, but a team with talent who holds a special bond.

“The team chemistry was strong between our team this year.” Estrada said. “As the season went on, our chemistry grew, especially in the playoffs. Chemistry is really important in soccer and our team had it on and off the field.”
