WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — For every sports team a winning season is expected. Making it past sectionals and regionals is hoped for. And advancing to State is the dream.

The Harrison boys soccer team is making that dream a reality for the second time in three years. The Raiders first trip to state was in 2015.

"I was ready to play on Monday morning when I woke up," said head coach Bryan Clouse.

"We came out slow," said senior defender Peter Newton. "Center Grove just came out and man handled us and were able to get a 4-0 lead and put us away early. "

The same group of boys are headed back, this time as seniors.

"Well it's been a great run," said senior goal keeper Calvin Walters. "After it's over, it'll probably be a little bitter sweet. But it's been great to play with the guys for over ten years."

Now though, it's different. They're older and more experienced.

"One thing that is really aided in our success this year is the fact that they've been there," said Clouse. "They were young but they remember."

For some this is a once in a life time opportunity. For most the end of their soccer career. And for all, the chance to do something that hasn't been done before.
