Assistant coach Andy Walt addresses the team on the season as coach James Ranheim listens. While both coaches have been a part of the soccer program, this is their first year as head coach and assistance coach. Using an analogy of a train, the soccer program is on the right track and it is picking up steam.
The Rails will be saying goodbye to six seniors this year. Shown (L to R): Max Nelson, Teagan Schmock, Ben Bray, Mykal Lake, John Hoellen and exchange student Alessandro Tartaglino.
