1996 & 1997 Boys Soccer Team State Champions
Back to back state champions and a two-year record of 36-1, the Marist boys soccer teams from 1996 and 1997 clinched the school’s first and second state championships.
In 1996, the boys outscored their opponents 102-10. The team was by state player of the year, Scott Tedder, and forward Matt Stitz (all-district and 2nd team all-state). Ryan Mueller (2nd team all-state sweeper) anchored a group of defenders that seemed impossible to beat. Most importantly, the season commemorated Cody Waters ’96 ☩ , their teammate from their 1995 season.
They say that the only thing harder than winning a first state championship is winning the second, but the 1997 boys soccer team did just that! Led by eight seniors, the team shut out 13 of their opponents, including in the State Championship game against La Salle (their one loss from the regular season). Parker Nehl was 2nd team all state and Ryan Sieg was named All-State Player of the Year in 1997.
