The Emmett boys soccer team earned two of the three first-team selections from EHS when the All-Southern Idaho Conference fall sports teams were announced last week. Aristeo Alvizo, head coach of the boys soccer team was also honored as SIC 4A Soccer Coach of the Year.
The boys soccer team which finished the season with a 14-7-1 record after having gone winless the previous two seasons, earned the fourth place trophy at the Idaho High School Activities Association State championships the end of October.
Alvizo was selected for the Coach of the Year honors by vote of his opposing head coaches.
Lennyn “Kiko” Solis and Oscar Lara-Sandoval were first team All-SIC soccer selections. Solis, who set a school record with 42 goals this season, finished second in the player of the year voting by one vote to Caldwell’s Damian Arguello who led the Cougars to their second straight State title. Solis and Lara-Sandoval are both seniors.
