A two-minute span during the second half doomed the Seahawks however as they fell 3-1 to Fort Mill. (The AAA Championship game can be viewed free at schsl.org.) The accolades have only begun to pour in to the well-deserving boys.

The Class of 2012 set itself apart from all other soccer classes and set a new standard for success. Mike Ritterbeck, Robert Barrientos, Captain Alvaro Aguilar, Ruben Romero, Captain Tyler Betts, Captain Nick Karis, and Bennett Murphy helped this program achieve what it never had before. Their legacy will live on as will their spirit as their sweat and blood will be forever mixed with the dirt and grass in County Stadium so generations ahead can draw inspiration from them. Forty-six wins and 3 region titles in three years along with a Lower State title and the # 2 ranking will be a challenge for all others to rise up to. Farwell and God Bless the Class of 2012.
