Cavaliers class of field

Class soccer seems to fit well with the Canterbury boys soccer program.

Already a three-time state champion, putting the Cavaliers into Class A is a lot like putting perennial power Muncie Burris in 2A volleyball.

The Cavaliers (15-1-4) have been the top-ranked team in Class A for almost the entire season. With a talented sophomore and junior class, as well as some pretty good seniors, the Cavs have the chance at a dynasty in class soccer, just like the Owls have dominated 2A in volleyball since the advent of class volleyball.

But first thing is first, and Canterbury has some other ranked teams between it and a possible state championship this year.

“There are no more ducks, not like any of these teams were,” Canterbury coach Greg Mauch said of beating Bishop Luers 5-0 in the finals of the Garrett Regional. “But it doesn’t get any easier, and I don’t mean to belittle any of the teams we have played previously. If we win this thing, we will have played them all.”
