YOUNG COMETS LOOK TO THE FUTURE

The Penn Manor’s boys soccer team faced a year of many changes. Four-year head coach Dan Wagner resigned prior to the season after leading the 2001 soccer team to a 5-9 record and a fifth place section one finish. New coach, Doug Eby, was hired just two weeks prior to the start of the season. Doug Eby, a middle school teacher at Manor Middle, brought a hard work ethic and a positive attitude into his first year as a head varsity soccer coach.

Eby and his extremely young team had a solid season where they improved dramatically every game. The Comets ended the season in 6th place with a 2-9-1 record in section one and a 3-10-1 record overall. Despite the losing record, Eby is confident that his young team will continue to improve and become very competitive in section one.

Junior Sean Shover was named first team section one all-star and senior Josh Smith was named section one second team all-star. Tim Kuklewski was honored as an academic all-star for the Lancaster-Lebanon League. Honors within the team included:

Hardest Work Ethic: Sr. Tim Kuklewski
Most Improved Player: Jr. Derrick Mannino
Most Versatile Player: Jr. Sean Shover
Most Consistent Player: Sr. Josh Smith
Most Valuable Player: Jr. Alan Smith

Other highlights within the Comet’s soccer team were Freshman Terry Fry who scored three goals and had two assists, and freshman Zack Kurtz and sophomore Zack Charles who also added to the strength of the Comets. These young players in addition to a strong junior class of Mitch Crawford, Sean Shover, Travis Masten, Erik Sauders, Tyler Duschl, and Derrick Mannino, should prove to be a strong team next season.
