It was no surprise to anyone that Dwight would be our matchup, this was our motivation all year. However, the day was not to be ours. Following some of our most inspired play of the season in the first 10-15 minutes of the game, the boys couldn't put away a goal. Dwight was able to capitalize on its chances, netting three goals quickly. In the second half, Dwight shut down the Dalton attack. Yunsang would eventually put in his fourth goal of the season. It would not be enough. The final score would read 4-1, and settling for second would feel as rotten as we all imagined it would.
The following students would be named to the KAIAC ALL TOURNAMENT TEAM: Bumjoon Kim, Jiwon Kang, Yunsang Jeon and Miguel Batanero.
The following students would be named to the KAIAC ALL CONFERENCE TEAM: Miguel Batanero, Philip Yoon, Jungmin Kim, Yunsang Jeon.
The DALTON GOLDEN BOOT AWARD will be awarded to Bumjoon Kim this year - A Dalton record 7 goals in a season.
The DALTON SEASON MVP AWARD will be awarded to Miguel Batanero - A Dalton record 5 assists in a season, as well as an undying passion love of the game. For Miguel, there is no half speed. His play is unselfish and focused on making those around him better.
It was an incredible season. The boys played and trained with heart. Remember boys, "tough times don't last, but tough people do." You have made Dalton proud. Seniors, we are all looking forward to seeing what you accomplish in the future. We wish you luck!
While we lose some important pieces of the team next year, Dalton retains a strong incoming senior and sophomore classes. It should be interesting to see what Dwight can bring to the table to match them.
