There wasn’t a lot to celebrate this season for the Columbus or Dodgeland/Hustisford prep boys soccer teams, with just two wins combined between them.
But both did have reason to be happy when the all-Capitol Conference awards list was released.
Despite their struggles, the Cardinals had sophomore goalkeeper Quinn Meinholz make second team all-conference while four others received honorable mention. And Dodgeland/Husty had forward Nicholas Blome net second team honors with two others garnering honorable mention.
Meinholz had a saves percentage of .795 while Blome had 20 goals and seven assists.
The others honored for Columbus were forward Sal Genco (seven goals, six assists), midfielder Jeromy Toutant (two goals, four assists) and defenders Dan Smedema and Hayden Ott.
Dodgeland/United’s other two players honored were midfielder Blake Olsen and defender Hirochi Ura.
Columbus finished eighth in the ten-team league at 1-7-1 while Dogeland/Hustisford was ninth at 1-8.
Sugar River senior Jack Gentilli was the Capitol Conference player of the year after scoring 17 goals — five of them were game winners — and notching five assists to help his team win the conference title with a perfect 9-0 record.
