Boys Varsity Soccer is back and ranked #1 by the Baltimore Sun heading into the season! Not only that, Forward Josh Petty '24 and Defender Eddie Smith '24 were also named Players to Watch.

"A three-year starter and second-team All-Metro pick, Smith brings energy and focus to the back line. He has quality one-on-one defending skills and his all-business approach sets a fearless tone for the Patriots."
