The boys soccer team has continued their success from last season as they have won eight of their first ten games. Currently ranked as the 7th best large school by STL Today, the Panthers have high expectations for the 2015 season.

“I see that we have the skill and ability to make it to the District final. Though, reaching the Final Four is our main goal” said senior midfielder, Chase Guerrero.

The boys continue their season Sept. 17 at home against Pacific and Sept. 21 against O’Fallon at Soccer Park. The boys full schedule is available at: http://www.maxpreps.com/high-schools/mehlville-panthers-(st-louis,mo)/soccer/schedule.htm
