The Assumption Boys’ Soccer Team earned its first trip to the Iowa Class 1A State Tournament in 14 years, making it all the way to the State Championship game on June 3 at the James W. Cownie Soccer Complex in Des Moines before falling to Iowa City Regina by the score of 1-0.
Under longtime head coach Greg Zeller, the Knights defeated Gilbert 2-1 in the semifinals, after dispatching of Garner-Hayfield-Ventura 6-0 in the quarterfinal round. A 7-1 district final win over Clinton Prince of Peace, along with a 4-0 substate victory over Danville, propelled Assumption back to state for the first time since 2003.
Following the season, junior Sam Moore, who set a single-season school record with 21 goals, was named First Team All-State by the Iowa High School Soccer Coaches Association. Moore, along with fellow junior Trent Fitzpatrick, were both First Team All-Conference selections, while seniors Ben Beutel and Alex Terrell were Second Team honorees. The Knights finished the year 16-7 overall and return a strong core next year.
