Mount Si High School’s boys’ soccer team went 13-6-1 last season, and made the state 3A playoffs, falling to Kennedy Catholic in the first round. This season, the Wildcats, buoyed by a huge senior class, will look to make it two years in a row they’ve made it to state, but this time, it will be a much tougher challenge to get there as a 4A school for the first time.
Darren Brown is back for his 12th season at the helm of the Mount Si boys, and he is excited about the season. “We’ve brought back 80%, 85% of our core from last year’s state playoff team, so we have a lot of guys returning and they’re hungry to show 4A what we’re all about,” Brown said. “That 2010 group of mine, that group was really special. This group has the same ability, I think, to do some damage because there’s so much veteran presence on it,” he added, making reference to his 2010 team that won the Kingco 3A title and made it to state as well, falling in the second round.
