Boca Raton Community High School boys soccer team returns home with state title

So many tough battles were played for the Bobcats and after a long season, the Boca Raton Community High School boys soccer team came out on top and claimed the state title.

With 24 wins and no losses, Boca Raton has claimed their fifth state title.

Earlier this season we knew we had an objective to finalize that and have that in our hands,” said Reed Ostendorf, who is the team’s senior, left center back. “Like I said, to end the state final game with the trophy, theres no better feeling.

The Bobcats had a total of 18 shutouts and averaged almost four goals a game.

I knew that if we just concentrated on not getting scored on, that the offense would take care of itself,” coach Marcelo Castillo said. “Sure enough, defense wins championships and Im so happy that in a week these kids are going to be planning to pick out their rings.

However, theyre now looking forward to a new challenge and hope theyll get another shot to defend their title.

Thats the part that keeps me going. Next year will be my 20th year here and I told the kids here that Im going to pull the plug on my career here when I dont want to win anymore,” Castillo said. “These kids kind of reignite my fire for winning every year. Now, I dont win for me, I win for them.

Coach also told WPTV that he feels good about the kids that are returning. He is loosing half of his starters. However, he knows that he has a great group of kids in reserve and he cant wait to see if they can defend the state championship.
