The SRJC Men's Soccer Team opened up the 2013 season with a trip to Hawaii. The Bear Cubs played BYU and HPU both Division II schools and played both very competitively. The trips value was in the cohesiveness the team felt on returning to the mainland. While expensive, time consuming, and an arduous task to plan the trip; the intrinsic value for the players and coaches carried us throughout the season.
SRJC has had more talented teams, but never in Coach Kinahan's 16 years at Santa Rosa, have they had a group of young men who listened better, trained harder, and played for each other with such a relentless spirit. The schedule for the 2013 was possibly the toughest in California playing the 1-2-3-7-8-15-18 final ranked teams in the state. This proved to be a tough schedule, but the learning curve was steep and the players and coaches, while dropping some games, never felt defeated.
The Bear Cubs last loss was September 27th. They did not lose one match in the month of October. The 0-1 loss came in the 88th minute to Foothill in the third round of the playoffs. SRJC compiled a 13-4-6 record, hosted three play-off games, and won the Big 8 Conference Title. They finished the season ranked 4th in California and 11th in the nation. Not bad for a team that was 2-2-2 at one point in the season.
2014-2015 Season Preview
In his 17th season as head coach, Marty Kinahan is excited about the team's potential in 2014. The cubs will have strong sophomore leadership including 2014 All Far West Francisco Garcia (Santa Rosa), 2nd Team All-Conference Victor Caleron (Fairfield), and Dontae Garcia (Santa Rosa). They are looking forward to a successful season with solid returners and great new additions.
