Texas Wesleyan’s men’s soccer team is off to a tough start at 4-7, but the team is looking forward.
The players are excited to change things up to prove their worth in the upcoming games, senior exercise science major Alejandro Rey said.
“We expect to fix our mistakes,” Rey said.
Rey has high hopes for his last year of collegiate soccer, and for his teammates such as junior criminal justice Luis Pumarejo.
Pumarejo feels the team has many strengths, but also a few weaknesses to work on.
“Offensively we are pretty good but defensively we are struggling as a team,” Pumarejo said.
Pumarejo said that the team is coming together as a unit.
“We have players from all over the world,” said Pumarejo, who is from Puerto Rico. “Most of us don’t have family over here, so we try to be a family off the field as much as we can.”
Despite the mediocre record, several members of the team said nothing can get in the way of their bonds with each other.
“I love my teammates,” junior business major Micah Day said. “They mean a lot to me.”
The Rams play Mid-America Christian University at Martin Field on Tuesday at 7 p.m. Admission is free.
