The Indian River varsity girls soccer team ended their season with a 5-9-1 record, in the first round of the semi-finals of the Frontier League tournament. The girls final game was played against the Watertown Cyclones on October 15th, with a final score of 4-0 Watertown. Throughout the season, midfielder Kelsi Nabywaniec scored four goals and six assists which led the team. Sidney Black and Karla Olson both scored three goals.

The Indian River girls had a total of 20 goals and 13 assists this season. The highlight of the 2014 season was scoring 9 goals against Hammond.

Sadly, the Indian River girls head coach Duane Dusharm is retiring after more than 25 years of coaching. Throughout his many years of coaching, he has led many teams to undefeated seasons and Frontier League titles. In July, Mr. Dusharm also plans to retire from his teaching job at the high school, after many years of being a Driver Education teacher.

Throughout this fall season and many successful fall sports teams, the Indian River varsity boys soccer team, coached by Mr. Lavancha, have advanced to quarterfinals. The boys, whose record is 14-1-1, are seeded number one and are scheduled to play the fourth-ranked team Jamesville-DeWitt, on Wednesday, October 29th. The boys have had a 9-0 season in the Frontier League and were Frontier League Champions. The boys leading scorer was Junior Malinoski who had scored 21 goals throughout the season. Kyle Smith leads the number of assists for the boys with 15 assists so far. Zachary LaForest-Hurd has had a total of 57 saves this season, Zach saved one goal in a penalty kick shootout with Watertown to win the game. The Warriors in general were impressive for both the boys and the girls. Go Warriors!
