Boys soccer racks up all-state & Coach of the Year awards

Congratulations to our Bearcat boys soccer team on an outstanding season that finished just shy of a  state tournament berth. The team finished the season with a #3 ranking in the state and was one of the top teams in the tough 7th Region. Coach Charlie Traughber won Private School Coach of the Year honors and several players received all-state recognition.
Coach Traughber credited his coaching staff of Arron Davis, Cliff Long, and Emmanuel Nfor for all of their hard work and dedication, and said the award was not possible without them. "It is really an honor to win the Coach of the Year Award considering the quality of the other coaches that were nominated,” he commented. “This is a team sport though and I view it as a coaching staff award. I've got the best staff in the state and those guys really stepped up in a year that was anything but normal."

Coach Traughber also praised his players for their commitment to excellence over the years. “Last year, we exceeded expectations by having a 1st Team All-State, 2nd Team All-State and Honorable Mention All-State player selected. This is quite an accomplishment given the size of our Upper School and the teams we compete against. This year, we did even better. We had two players selected to First Team All-State and three players selected to Second Team All-State! A recognition of all the hard work the players have put in over their time at KCD.”

Congratulations to the following Bearcat All-State players:

Nate Traughber

2nd Team All-State
