The following is a synopsis of the 2011 Searsport District High School boys varsity soccer squad:

Team: Searsport boys soccer.

Coach/years coached current team: John Frye, fourth year.

Last year’s record/playoff information: 1-13, 18th in Eastern Class C. Did not qualify for the playoffs.

Roster: Seniors Jason Brooks (fullback) and Forrest Pacholski (wing); juniors Jordan Bleakney (fullback), Zach Beaudry (wing), Jake Kenniston (halfback), James Harvey (halfback), Tim Chase (striker), Austin Bean (goalie), Buddy Ellis (halfback) and Darren Harriman (sweeper); sophomore Will Hutcheson (striker); and freshmen Alex Woodard (wing), Kevin Kenniston (fullback), Jake Powell (fullback), Jay Burkard (wing) and Dylan Grant (fullback).

Graduation loss: Tyler Greenlaw.

Significant impact players: Hutcheson, Chase. Harriman and Powell.

Team strengths: Plenty of speed and strong passing ability.

Team goals: Shooting for a .500 record and building for the future.

Top league opponents: Piscataquis of Guilford, Sumner of East Sullivan, George Stevens Academy of Blue Hill and Bucksport.

Outlook: Numbers have been down for the Vikings the past few seasons, but appear to be on the rise with a healthy number of underclassmen and a large group playing at the eighth-grade level. Coach Frye feels if he can manage his team’s expectations and keep building, he hopes his squad will climb out of the Eastern Class C basement and into the middle of the pack — which would mean a postseason berth.
